VILLANOVA recruit Daniel Ochefu, a senior forward who came to this country from Nigeria, is no longer at the Westtown School. Sources confirmed that he has withdrawn following what has been described as a minor internal disciplinary action. Ochefu is now attending Downingtown East High, where it is expected he will soon graduate. The sources have indicated that Ochefu is still going to end up on the Main Line. Attempts to reach Ochefu were unsuccessful. Wildcats coach Jay Wright isn't allowed to talk because of NCAA rules, and Westtown coach Seth Berger declined to comment.

Buena wide receiver Kenny Miles, who set a South Jersey record with 149 points scored by a non-back, made an oral commitment yesterday to attend Villanova. The 6-foot, 190-pound Miles caught 45 passes for 981 yards and a South Jersey-best 17 receiving touchdowns. Miles, who was an Inquirer first-team all-South Jersey selection, had made an oral commitment to Towson but changed his mind when Villanova offered him a scholarship. "Villanova was his first choice all along, and when they offered today, he accepted," Buena coach Paul Callahan said last night.
