Announcing his commitment via Instagram
CJ Wilcher is a class of 2019 shooting guard out of Newark, NJ. Clocking in at 6'5", the sophomore to be was rated in the top 150 coming out of high school and regarded as an elite shooter. Wilcher saw limited playing time this season until senior SG Nate Johnson went down with an injury. It's probable that Johnson's decision to come back for another year led to Wilcher looking elsewhere for playing time. Matt Abdelmassih had originally offered Wilcher at both St John's and Nebraska.
At this moment Wilcher would have to redshirt unless granted a waiver. However, he might be immediately eligible if the NCAA puts a one-time transfer exception rule into place. Wilcher will have 4 years of eligibility left.
