Fordham's leading scorer has apparently made his decision in regard to his future.

Eric Paschall, the Rams' freshman sensation, has committed to transfer to Villanova, as per CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein. A formal announcement is expected tomorrow.

Paschall, a 6-6 swingman, averaged 15.9 points and 5.5 rebounds per game as Fordham finished 10-21 for the second straight year. He was voted Rookie of the Year in the Atlantic 10 Conference by virtue of his impressive statistics, and shared MBWA Rookie of the Year honors with Angel Delgado of Seton Hall, whom he will now play against should the Pirates' rebounding machine remain in South Orange.

Paschall will have three years of eligibility remaining, beginning in the 2016-17 season upon completion of his NCAA-mandated year in residence.

  1. Smart move by Paschall; Fordham was a bad fit for him. A high level talent on a low level program like Fordham will have his development held back.

    He probably saw that Fordham would never be able to surround him with talented enough players.

    If only Fordham would address the mistake they made with conference affiliation they might be able to turn that program around. Getting rid of Pecora will help.
