2016 F Kassoum Yakwe reports Villanova offer

Jay Wright has reportedly offered his fourth target in the class of 2016.

Kassoum Yakwe is a 6'7" 185 lb. forward from Centereach, NY. Yakwe plays his high school basketball at Our Savior New American, and plays his AAU ball for Team Scan. Yakwe currently reports offers from Villanova. St. John's, Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Washington, Kansas, Seton Hall, UConn and Rutgers, according to a Twitter source.

Not sure how reputable that source is reporting it, but Jerry Meyer did acknowledge. It's a safe bet that there is a least some pretty good interest from Villanova at this point. Take it with a grain of salt.

The elite prospect is a menace on the defensive side of the ball, using his length to disrupt play around the rim. The lefty (!) also possesses nice range on his jump shot, and could project at either the 3 or the 4 depending on how he fills out over the next couple of years. In early August, Yakwe was named the Most Outstanding Prospect at the Hoop Group Future All-American Camp.
