Chenault Tours Wake, Collects Interests

Sophomore Tony Chenault is tightening up his game and touring campuses. The 6-foot-1 point checks in with

He's on the map as one of the top point guards in the east. Class of 2010 standout Tony Chenault, a Philadelphia (Penn.) Neumann Goretti product, completed his sophomore season and hit the road.

The 6-foot-1 Chenault expanded his role, according to assistant coach John Mosco. "He improved on his jump shot and the next step he needs to take is being more of a leader and raising the play of the guys around him," Mosco said. "He's a work in progress but he's a gym rat. He's the hardest working kid we've ever had."

Chenault felt good, not great about his season that ended with him being named first-team all-Catholic League. "There was a lot of pressure on me and I think I lived up to it. I have to keep getting better at becoming more of a leader."

The floor general loves watching ball. When he does flip on the set, he's likely to turn on the Texas Longhorns. "D.J. Augustin is the guy. He's so calm. You never see him get out of control. That's what I want to take away from his game. You don't have to score to be effective in the game."

Only a sophomore, Chenault has a beat on his recruitment. Villanova, Wake Forest, St. Joseph's, Virginia and Pittsburgh are among the teams to show heavy interest. Last weekend, Chenault ventured to Wake Forest for the Demon Deacons final regular season contest.

"Everything was good. The ACC is a tough level and Wake Forest is a great program. I like the coaches and the atmosphere. The coaches were honest and they didn't just B.S. you. It was someplace I could fit in at."

Thus far Villanova, Pittsburgh, Virginia and St. Joe's have offered scholarships.

"I'm just weighing my options. I want to see everything and what they have to offer me."
