Marvin Bagley may play college basketball this season

Bagley could join a potential opponent of Villanova.

Happy Tuesday, ‘Nova Nation! It’s not exactly Villanova-specific, but there was still some pretty big rumor-mongering happening at the Peach Jam this weekend. That’s because the top prospect in the class of 2018 - Marvin Bagley - may class up and play college basketball this season.

Making a mockery of the NCAA’s academic standards aside, this is potentially massive news. Bagley is pretty widely regarded as the best prospect regardless of class and would almost unanimously be the #1 pick in the NBA Draft next year as well.

Duke Blue Devils, USC Trojans and Arizona Wildcats are the reported contenders - so the rich may get richer at the top. And Arizona might be on the schedule this year.

And now, the “news.”
