Judging by Wills quotes, Stanford’s effort in the recruitment clearly paid off. That’s not to doubt Villanova’s either which had sent assistant Kyle Neptune to several practices and games in recent weeks. Stanford’s academics likely played a huge factor as well, given Wills’ reputation as a great student.
Wills is an intriguing prospect that looked like an ideal development candidate on the Main Line, but Villanova won’t be hurting despite losing out on his services. They bring in Brandon Slater on the wing next year.
