The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for August 7, 2014

New, comments

Daily links, today featuring Brunson's recruitment, more bracket reveals, and the Eagles moving to slime green uni's.

Happy Thursday, you guys! Some days, you just get that feeling. Just sheer power. Look at the players we're recruiting right now. Tell me the last time you saw a list of names like that this late in the game. It's been a few years, to say the least.

And better yet, we're already looking good with the players we have committed. As much as I want to call these guys must-haves, it's really gravy. These are the guys that can raise the Villanova program to the next level and help elevate the Big East in the process.

In Jay we trust.

And now, the "news."
