Markus Kennedy will indeed be transferring from Villanova’s basketball program after all.
Nearly a month ago, the sophomore forward had announced his intention to leave the Main Line after only one season. Then, according to sources, Kennedy decided he might want to reconsider. But after talking to coach Jay Wright, he’s moving on.
“We had a good talk,” said Wright. “He’s a wonderful kid. I respect his decision, and support it. We wish him nothing but the best.”
Kennedy averaged 3.0 points and 4.4 rebounds coming off the bench in close to 20 minutes a game last season. Sources have confimred that Kennedy’s primary reason for moving on were concerns over playing time and how he’d be utilized in Villanova’s guard-oriented offense.
