The latest scholarship offer from Villanova has been sent out to Brandon Slater, a 2018 prospect out of Paul VI (Va.). Slater plays for Team Takeover (Md.) on the AAU circuit.
Very blessed and happy to say I have received an offer from Villanova!!! pic.twitter.com/2BePZ954up— Brandon Slater (@CleanSlaaate_) July 26, 2016
At 6'6" and 180 lbs., Slater is a wiry athlete with a developing game. He's extremely athletic and you can easily see all the physical gifts he has, but he'll need to add a lot of strength and work on his off-hand when attacking the basket. He's got the makeup of what the 'Nova staff wants on the wing though. You can draw some comparisons to a young Mikal Bridges at the same stage, if you're into that sort of thing.
Ranked #45 in the Composite already, Slater reports offers from Louisville, Maryland, Virginia and Miami (Fla) among others.
