Villanova Hunting a 2013 Big Man

Villanova's need for an addition of a Big-Man to the team after this season is growing. We discussed the lack of depth at the 4 & 5 spot and Villanova's dearth of players taller than 6'7".

Recruiting experts have noted some recent additions to the search for a large body following the 2013 season.

  • Johnathon Wilkins- 6'10" La Lumiere School (La Porte, IN). #21 Big Man ranked in the Class of 2014 by Scout. According to Brian Snow [$], Wilkins has "good natural timing block shots, excellent feet, and the ability to run the floor."
  • Jared Scott- 6'8" Flora MAcDonald Academy (Columbia Ravens, NC). 2013.
  • Mark Williams- 6'8" Montrose Christian (MD). According to Jerry Meyer, Williams, "An extremely strong force on the low block".

In combination with the big man prospects noted a week ago Villanova has a few lines in the water to land another big man for their 2013 class, and while they aren't likely to bring in a superstar, the Wildcats should be able to bring in a big body who can help on defense immediately and potentially develop over four years.
