AS HAS BEEN anticipated, Neumann-Goretti product Tony Chennault appears close to transferring to Villanova, sources said. An official announcement could come in the next few days.
The 6-2 guard recently decided to leave Wake Forest after two seasons to be closer to home because his mother, Crystal Mortan, has been experiencing health problems. He is petitioning the NCAA for a hardship waiver, which would allow him to become eligible immediately. But sources have indicated that Chennault likely will end up with the Wildcats, which was his second choice coming out of high school, even if he has to sit out a season.
