The Villanova Wildcats have extended an offer to 2019 power forward John Bol Ajak, per Pat Lawless on Twitter.

The local big man originally from South Sudan now lives in Paoli (Pa.) and attends the Church Farm School in Exton. He played up a year on the EYBL with Team Final this past summer and clearly peformed well having already received offers from Syracuse, Seton Hall, Wake Forest and Saint Louis.

At 6’10” and just 200 pounds he has a great frame and should continue to fill out as he gets older. Right now, most reports have him as a raw but rapidly improving prospect with undeniable physical gifts.

Given Villanova’s pipeline into the Team Final program and his rise this Summer, this looks like a smart local offer for the ‘Cats.
