The 2016 point guard was offered by staff members while stopping by traffic on his way to the MKC.

Payton Pritchard was on campus at Villanova today, ahead of his planned appearance in the Mary Kline Classic, his second unofficial visit to the school. The first visit came back in October, and after finishing his season in Oregon, the 6'1" point guard was extended an offer by the coaching staff, according to MKC organizer, Alex Kline.

Just a little past his 16th birthday, the guard is ranked #46 by Rivals, and has a 4-star rating on Rivals and 247Sports, while Scout.com rates him at 3-stars. He has also reportedly visited Notre Dame and Stanford, and possesses an offer from Oregon State as well. Other schools listed by the guard include Indiana, Butler, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Iowa among others -- he reportedly likes "the Big Ten's style of play."

Tyus Battle and Daryl Myers are other names in the picture as point guards for Villanova's 2016 class, while 5-Star 2015 PG Jalen Brunson is also high on the 'Cats list.
