Zagoria: Echenique headed to Creighton

Well, we promised you we’d get you more information on this Gregory Echenique fellow, and so we have. OK, more Adam Zagoria than us, but still.

Echenique, who listed Indiana as one of five possible destinations after announcing his intent to transfer from Rutgers, is headed to Creighton, says Zagoria. Indiana joins Georgia Tech, Maryland and Miami as one of the spurned.

In truth, the chances that Echenique ever ended up at IU are tough to figure.

The player expressed his interest, obviously, but it’s hard to tell whether he would have fit coach Tom Crean’s up-tempo style. There was also some Twitter chatter (Chitter? Yea, probably not.) recently suggesting Creighton was a favored choice, something Zagoria elaborates upon in the above-linked story.

Either way, Echenique can apparently be crossed off the wish list.
