Transfer??
 
GCC is reporting that a PG from Villanova Tyrone Johnson is considering transfering to USC. If he comes he will sit out until Jan of next season.

He was a 4* PG and played highschool ball with Micheal Carerra.

Awesome

Word up there is that Jay Wright is about to lose his job.

That'd be awesome, and he'd still have 3 years of eligibility.

He wasn't good last year though, but hed definitely be an interesting option in the backcourt

He + Thornwell would be a great duo to build around.

Hell, we'd have Marcus Stroman coming the year after and *fingers crossed* L.J. Peak.

Interesting. Means Carrera has good things to say about playing here. That goes far in recruiting.

Never hurts to get a talented point guard. I hope he transfers.

Wasn't great last year, but he has room to grow, and Martin could help him grow.
If he decides to come, Martin will get the best out of him..if he doesn't, Martin will get players here regardless.

That would be totally tubular.

Whats interesting with this possible transfer is he can start to practice with the team as soon as jan 1 or maybe even before that when ever the semester is over.

He was on campus over the weekend visiting on an unoffical.

Tyrone Johnson to Transfer From Villanova
By MikeJ. on Nov 7, 3:26p

The sophomore point guard is set to leave Jay Wright's program.



Sophomore point guard Tyrone Johnson is planning to transfer from Villanova, according to a release sent by the program this afternoon. The Montrose Christian and Plainfield (NJ) guard informed the coaching staff that he will depart from the program before the season officially begins this weekend.

Johnson will remain enrolled at Villanova for the Fall semester and will work out with the coaching staff, despite not suiting up for the team. He will officially leave Villanova as a student after the fall semester.

"We’re going to miss Ty," stated Villanova head coach Jay Wright. "He has handled this with class. We all respect his work ethic, athletic ability and commitment to this program. We want what’s best for Ty."

Last season he appeared in all 32 games as a freshman and started nine games. He averaged 3.3 points, 2.0 assists (second on the team), 1.0 rebounds and 17.7 minutes in 2011-12. In the Wildcats' exhibition against Canadian champions, Carleton University last week, Johnson was used only sparingly, playing just 9 minutes as the starting point guard job was given to freshman Ryan Arcidiacono and the starting shooting guard spot went to Darrun Hilliard.

He scored no points in the contest, had two rebounds and two assists.

Observers expected that the Wildcats might have a transfer out of the backcourt either during or after this season, but it didn't appear likely that that would be Johnson until after the exhibition. Achraf Yacoubou was believed to be a potential odd-man-out, but his height allows him to play at and defend multiple positions on the perimeter.

Yacoubou played 18 minutes in the Thursday night preseason game, scoring 3 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists.

Villanova is still going hard after a couple of 2013 recruits and the move will open up an additional 2013 scholarship that could used to lure in a player like Tyler Roberson, who recently cut his list to three schools. Nova is also awaiting the decision of 6-8 forward Austin Colbert in the 2013 class, who could make his decision soon.

Peak is looking toward Big East, not that he transferred from Gaffney. The key recruit for us PJ. Dozier

I'm sure he is, but we do still have an offer out to him. I guess we'll see.

Dozier is 2015, still a while, but I think he'll end up coming.

If we win 16 or so games this year, Peak might have more to consider.

Former Villanova 6-3 guard Tyrone Johnson visited USC last weekend according to Bill Gunter of TheBigSpur.com. Johnson announced earlier this month he was leaving Villanova. He is a sophomore and will enroll at his new school in January. Gunter reported Johnson would visit George Washington this weekend. Johnson has a couple of friends on the GW team. Johnson is a native of New Jersey but he played his final high school season for Montrose Christian in Maryland. USC freshman Michael Carrera also played at Montrose Christian and is friends with Johnson.
