While the Villanova coaching staff is still trying to finish their 2018 and start their 2019 recruiting classes, two top targets from the 2020 class will be on campus today.

Jalen Green, a 6’5” shooting guard out of Fresno, California, was the first offer for the 2020 class from the Villanova staff. Green, who attends San Joaquin Memorial High School, is already considered one of the best players in the 2020 class. ESPN ranks Green as a five star and currently ranks him #2 in the class.
Green has already received offers from Arizona, Connecticut, Creighton, Oklahoma State, UCLA, USC, and others, in addition to Villanova.
B.J. Boston, who stands at 6’5”, is a new target for Jay Wright and his staff. Boston attends Norcross High School in Norcross, Georgia, and is able to play both the ‘2’ and the ‘3’. Boston is also considered a five star by ESPN and is currently ranked #15 in the class.
Boston has already received offers from Virginia Tech, Rutgers, Georgia Tech, and Auburn. If things go well, Boston could receive an offer from Villanova today.
Both Green and Boston are already in Reading for the Hoop Group camp, so it is an ideal time for them to get on campus.
