UB Lands Regan!

In what can be classed as a pretty big surprise Will Reagan, one of the best players to come out of Western New York in recent years, decided to become a Buffalo Bull today:

Queue The UB Athletic Department:

BUFFALO, NY – Former Nichols School standout Will Regan, who played at Virginia last season, has signed a scholarship agreement to attend the University at Buffalo. Regan will have to sit out the 2011-12 season per NCAA transfer rules, but will have three years of eligibility remaining beginning with the 2012-13 season.

"I think it’s a good fit for Will. He’s grown up watching us and he’s familiar with us," head coach Reggie Witherspoon said. "He’s a terrific student. He compliments the things that we like to do. It’s a good fit for both parties and we are really excited to have him home again."

The 6-8 Regan played in 20 games for the Cavaliers during the 2010-11 season. He scored 25 points and had 18 rebounds. He was named to the 2011 All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Men's Basketball Team.

Regan was a three-time first-team All-Western New York selection at The Nichols School. He finished his four-year career with 2,008 points, 1,360 rebounds, averaging 19.1 points and 13 rebounds per game.  As a senior, he led Nichols to the Class A Federation State Championship.


So whats the impact for UB?

Well first off this is a spectacular turn of events for the Bulls, while he won't be around next season UB gets him for three seasons because he never used a red shirt at Virginia. He also fills the Bulls need for a big man who can shoot the ball.

Witherspoon had some advantages over other local coaches,  UB offered Regan a scholarship as an eighth grader and he made an unofficial visit to UB before selecting Virginia. This time around he signed up with Buffalo before having the chance to visit some other local schools like Niaraga, a visit he just canceled.

2012 could be a huge year with Javon McCrea (Invited to the National U19 team, Xavier Ford (3rd team All-American), and now Regan who was the 17th ranked Center in the 2010 class
