Villanova Basketball coaches can call their 2018 targets starting today

Also, LOL DePaul!

Huuuuuuuump Daaaaaaaaay! Starting at midnight, college coaches were allowed to put in a phone call to 2018 recruits. Not that I'm advocating for Jay to call at that hour - goodness I hope he has better things to do, like sleep - but today should give us a better window into who the 'Cats are after.

So far, we've seen four offers extend in for the class of 2018 - PF Naz Reid, PG Jahvon Quinerly, SF Cameron Reddish, and PF Jalen Smith. That list should grow soon now that the coaches can be in direct contact.

And now, the "news."
