Daniel Ochefu Down To 4 Schools; Villanova Is Still Listed

Villanova has already landed verbal commitments from 2 of the top players in the Class of 2012 in Savon Goodman and Ryan Arcidiacono. If there is a need though, it's for another body down low. The 'Nova staff is after just that in local product Daniel Ochefu of Westtown, PA.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Ochefu has narrowed his list down to 4 schools: the Temple Owls, Texas Longhorns, Georgetown Hoyas, and Villanova Wildcats. He'll unofficially visit Temple this Friday before visiting Texas in the coming weeks. He's previously visited both Georgetown and 'Nova.

"Each of them are very different," (Coach Seth) Berger said. "They are four different opportunities. Each of them provides him with a great education, great coach and a chance to be a pro.

...Interesting situation here...not sure 'Nova is really in this race...but I'd be pretty disappointed to lose out on Ochefu to Temple (who Berger called "a Top 25 program for as long as I can remember" - right...

...We've got a tight scholarship situation...and Ochefu seems like he'll be making a verbal sooner rather than later...you never know what is going to happen after the season with transfers though...
