Recruiting: Looking at 2011 Point Guards


Tony Wroten is one of the Best in '11 (from The Seattle Times)

As Ed mentioned it's the summer time so topics are thin to discuss.

Today, we're going to take a quick look at recruiting some 2011 point guards...

First, there's Tony Wroten Jr. About a year ago we noted that the superstar guard out of Garfield HS in Seattle had mentioned Villanova in a list of possible schools. It was a passing reference and nothing else was seen until about a week ago when Wroten told a Kansas University site that Villanova was among 10 schools he is considering.

The 6'5" Wroten is ranked #2 in the Class of 2011 by Rivals and Scout.

Quinn Cook with the U16 Team

Two other point guards that note Villanova as a finalist are wrapping up successful campaign on the US U16 National Team; Quinn Cook and Sterling Gibbs.

Quinn Cook is around 6' and plays at Dematha in Hyattsville, MD. In the FIBA U16 Americas Championship, Cook was good for 22 points against Argentina in the final. He averaged just under 16 points and tallied 25 assists throughout the Tournament.

He has noted Villanova on his final list along with Duke, Georgetown, and Maryland.

Another Villanova target on the U16 team is Sterling Gibbs. If you follow along in the comments of our stories, you will have noticed discussion that Gibbs has recently noted that Villanova is his leader. He is the brother of of Pitt player Ashton Gibbs. The 6' point guard from Seton Hall Prep in NJ also had a stellar performance in the U16 Tournament in Argentina- he averaged 9.2 points.

Pitt, Oklahoma, Indiana, Rutgers, and Seton Hall are also under consideration.
