TGIF, 'Nova Nation! There's been some momentum with Villanova and Hameir Wright for a while, but as he continues to blow up this spring it's going to be tougher and tougher to close. That's why it's great to see Wright speak openly and positively about Villanova and his relationship with Jay Wright. He's essentially Mikal Bridges with a more polished offensive game, and you can sign me up for that right now.
He's not committing until the fall at the earliest, so a ways to go, but you have to like where the 'Cats stand right now.
Side note, AAU circuits are back in action this weekend (the Nike stop is in Virginia) but coaches are not permitted to get out and travel to any place other than the NBA Draft Combine, per NCAA rules. Expect some recruitiing interviews with the media, regardless.
And now, the "news."
