Earlier this week it was reported that former Apollo High School standout and Owensboro, KY native Eli Wright had entered the transfer portal after 1 season at St.John’s.
I spoke with A source close to Eli and asked if Eli he had any interest playing for WKU which he replied that he did. To follow that up I asked him if he had been in any sort of contact with WKU since news broke of him transferring to which he replied, They have reached out. The source also told me that he will be immediately eligible to play wherever he decides.
I think it is safe to say that WKU is one of Eli’s top choices right now, and the one that makes the most sense. Nothing is for sure yet, but I think some more good news could be coming to WKU basketball fans in the following days.
