The Villanova Wildcats have extended an offer to 2020 5-star point guard Nico Mannion. He announced it on Twitter Monday night.

Mannion is a 6’3” point guard from Phoenix, Arizona who plays for Pinnacle High School and West Coast Elite (Under Armour). He is AAU teammates with Josh Green, who also just received an offer from Villanova.
Mannion is a slick point guard with a fantastic shot, tight handle, and explosive athletic ability. Villanova has been scouting him since last Summer at the Under Armour All-American Camp and now will officially get in the mix for his signature.
Mannion recently discussed the possibility of reclassifying to the 2019 class ($), so that is something to keep an eye on as well.
