Villanova Captain Isaiah Armwood to Transfer

by August 18, 2011

Former four-star recruit from the loaded DC-area Class of ’09, Isaiah Armwood is looking for more burn. The junior forward doesn’t think he’ll get the time as a Wildcat. Via College Basketball Nation: “It is rare to see a transfer this late in the offseason calendar. It’s also rare to see a team captain decide he’s better off elsewhere. Alas, both are true of Villanova forward Isaiah Armwood, who came to an agreement with Wildcats coach Jay Wright that it was best for him to pursue his basketball career elsewhere, according to Jeff Goodman. Wright doesn’t want Armwood to leave, but he understands his player’s reasons: ‘He’s the greatest kid in the world,’ Wright gushed. ‘He’s our hardest-working guy, our captain. We started him every game on our trip. I love him to death. I just want to see him achieve his goals,’ he added.”
