Robert Johnson Cuts List, Villanova Out

New, comments

Following Phil Booth's commitment, another elite guard has eliminated Villanova.

Following Ja'Quan Newton's announcement of a final six, Robert Johnson today announced his final seven schools via Adam Zagoria's blog. The final group, in no particular order are Pittsburgh, Virginia, North Carolina, Indiana, Florida State, Miami and Georgetown.

The move comes as no surprise after Phil Booth's verbal commitment to Villanova, and subsequent interview in which Booth stated that it looks like 'Nova is all set for the class of 2014. Whether he means the entire class, or just the backcourt, remains to be seen.

Moving forward, if Jay Wright does opt to bring in any more players, it looks like he and his staff will be focusing exclusively on the frontcourt. At least that's a recruiting strategy that all Villanova fans should be able to agree on.
