Following an official visit to the Villanova Wildcats, 4-star prospect Jermaine Samuels has announced his Top 5 on Twitter.
First off I want to say thank you to all the Coaches that offered me through this great summer! Here is my top 5 pic.twitter.com/0THA6Ne5UI— Jermaine Samuels Jr. (@J_Swizz23) August 25, 2016
Samuels just wrapped up an official visit to Villanova, and Duke offered him sometime in the past two days depending on what reports you believe. Former clubhouse leader Xavier has been eliminated, which isn’t a surprise given their recent recruiting success at Samuels’ position.
Prior to the Duke offer, Villanova and Indiana were considered the favorites to land his signature. The Blue Devils also recently offered Alex O’Connell, another 4-star prospect as they try to secure some depth to their class while they chase elite targets like Kevin Knox and Gary Trent.
Expect Samuels to make some more visits (likely to Indiana and Duke) before making a decision.
