With a frontcourt player a top priority in 2016, Jay Wright is casting a wider net.

Eddie Ekiyor, a 6'9" 215 lb. forward from Ottawa, Ontario, CAN, has been offered by the Villanova Wildcats, per Hoops Hype Canada. Ekiyor has been a target on Villanova's radar for a while now, and with a frontcourt player the top priority in 2016 it's good to see Jay Wright throw his hat in to the ring.

Ekiyor also holds offers from Kansas State, Miami (FL), Providence, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest. The Canadian big man attends New Hampton School (NH), and plays with CIA Bounce on the AAU circuit. North Pole Hoops described him as having "great size and athleticism, accompanied with a strong motor and a developing skill set."

There's currently one pick in the 247 Crystal Ball - for Villanova - which was made in late October by Jack LeGwin of ZagsBlog.
