Villanova Wildcats junior guard Bryan Antoine has announced that he will transfer to the Radford Highlanders. The former top recruit never quite caught on in his three years with the Wildcats, mostly due to several different injuries. Hopefully, he can turn things around with his two years of remaining eligibility with Radford. It isn’t often a smaller program like Radford gets a player the level of Antoine even if he hasn’t quite panned out in college basketball.
Villanova transfer Bryan Antoine is headed to play at Radford, source told @Stadium.
Former Top 25 player who has dealt with a bunch of injuries. If he can get healthy, will be a HUGE pickup for Darris Nichols.

In his junior year with the Villanova Wildcats, Bryan Antoine averaged 1.5 points, 1.2 rebounds, and 0.5 assists per game. He paired those numbers with a field goal percentage of 23.8 percent and a three-point percentage of 17.2 percent. His sophomore season was slightly better and considerably more efficient. Injuries have impacted his career and in three years he has played 16, 10, and 20 games respectively. The minutes he has received have also been fairly limited due to inconsistency from injuries.
The game has been changed as a ?????????? talent chooses the Highlanders.
Welcome to the family, @BryanAntoine_!?

The transfer portal is an opportunity for players to get a fresh start and it seems fairly clear that Bryan Antoine needs just that. Radford will be happy to have his potential and if healthy he could be one of the most talented players to go through the program. While next year is his senior year, he will have another year of eligibility after that he can use if he wants to do that.
