Oregon coach Dana Altman has done it again.
The Oregon Ducks basketball program added an impact post-graduate transfer Wednesday, according to Scout's Evan Daniels, who reported that Villanova guard Dylan Ennis committed to the program just days after taking an official visit during the spring game:
Prior to his spring game visit, Ennis was reportedly down to Baylor, Illinois and Oregon and was scheduled to visit all three lat week.
The 6-foot-2, 192-pound guard out of Villanova averaged 9.9 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game last season for the Big East-champion Wildcats, starting all 36 games in the process.
Despite the heavy playing time, Ennis decided to transfer after the season in order to play a role for which he felt more suited.
"Dylan is interested in finding a program that will allow him to play the role of a traditional point guard so he can be the primary ball-handler," Villanova coach Jay Wright expressed in a statement. "We support Dylan and thank him for all of his efforts as a student and athlete at Villanova."
The Oregon Ducks are poised to make a run in the NCAA Tournament next season, as the team brings back the majority of its talent from last year, led by Elgin Cook, Dillon Brooks, Jordan Bell and Dwayne Benjamin, and is adding a top-20 recruiting class, highlighted by five-star shooting guard Tyler Dorsey.
However, the Ducks had a significant need at the point guard position, where sophomore-to-be Casey Benson struggled with consistency last season and incoming freshman four-star recruit Kendall Small lacks experience. With Ennis in the fold, Oregon has added the much-needed backcourt experience and poise that was lost with the graduation of Pac-12 Player of the Year Joe Young.
In the class of 2015, Altman finally built a class of four-year high school talents, but in the end, he still added his signature transfer.
