Ty Johnson transfers from Villanova

Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE

Ty Johnson has decided to transfer from Villanova, as the sophomore will opt to find another school after being passed in the Wildcats' point guard rotation by a freshman and junior transfer.

Sophomore point guard Ty Johnson will transfer out of Villanova, head coach Jay Wright announced Wednesday, just two days before the team's season opener.

Johnson played in all 32 of the team's games in his only season with the Wildcats, starting nine times. The 6'2 player from Montrose Christian didn't have the best season as a freshman, averaging 3.3 points and 2.0 points and shooting only 31 percent from the field in almost 18 minutes a game. With the player ahead of him in the rotation last season, current Philadelphia 76er Maalik Wayns, graduating, Johnson was expected to contend for a starting point guard spot. But instead, freshman Ryan Arcidiacono took the starting spot and junior transfer from Wake Forest Tony Chennault seems like the likely backup. In an exhibition matchup with Carleton College, Johnson only played nine minutes, recording zero points.

It's not clear where Johnson intends on transferring. He will remain enrolled at Villanova for fall semester and train with the coaching staff while seeking a destination for the 2013-2014 season.
