Payton Pritchard, a 2016 PG from West Linn, Oregon, will unofficially visit the Villanova campus today. Pritchard plays his AAU ball for Team Fast in the Pacific Northwest. Pritchard is listed at 5'11" and 165 pounds.

Just a sophomore, Pritchard is already rated 4 stars by Rivals and 247sports (who ranks him 46th nationally in their early 2016 rankings), while Scout has assigned a 3 star rating. Oregon State appears to be his only reported offer thus far, but with a visit to Notre Dame completed and Villanova and Stanford on deck, academics appear to be a priority.

Payton Pritchard highlights

Pritchard is on an East Coast swing, and over the weekend picked up the co-MVP award at the Jim Couch Super 16 National Showcase. He also is scheduled to visit Stanford within the next two weeks. With Tyus Battle the lone point guard offer thus far in 2016, Pritchard looks like another option in addition to reported interest from Daryl Myers.
