Tony Chennault wants to play closer to home.
Chennault, who is a Wake Forest point guard, has decided to transfer at the end of the current semester. He attended Saints John Neumann and Maria Goretti Catholic High School in Philadelphia.
He is in his sophomore campaign, and started all 31 games for the Demon Deacons this season. Wake Forest finished with a 13-18 overall record, with a 4-12 record in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
“This was a tough decision to leave my teammates at this point in my career, but at the end of the day I have to do what’s best for me and my family,” Chennault said to the Wake Forest sports information office. “This was a personal choice that has nothing to do with basketball.
“I want to thank the Wake Forest community and Deacon fans for supporting us the past two seasons. I will always be a Deacon at heart and a part of the Wake Forest family.”
He averaged 9.0 points and 2.8 assists per game this season. He has a 7.5 points and 2.5 assists average in 46 career games.
