Echenique to Transfer

Rutgers sophomore post player Greg Echenique is set to transfer from the Scarlet Knights. Echenique is one of the most highly touted recruits that head coach Fred Hill has brought in over the past couple of years. The 6'9 sophomore, out of New Jersey's Saint Benedict's Prep, averaged roughly 12 points and 7 rebounds so far this season. The question that begs to be asked now is this: Is this yet another strike against head coach Fred Hill? Is it possible that current sophomore Mike Rosario now considers a transfer? Due to several key recruiting misses and abysmal Big East records during his seasons as head coach, Hill has appeared to be on a seat that's getting hotter by the day. The loss of Echenique is likely to make that seat even hotter. Nothing has been reported in terms of a possible destination, but he is sure to be a coveted transfer.
