Mark your calendars, Villanova Wildcats fan. The first recruiting dominio of the 2019 class is set to fall in less than two weeks when Eric Dixon announces his college commitment.

There’s currently no planned location or time, but we will update this post if that information becomes available.
If you’re into the Crystal Ball, the Villanova trend has only gotten stronger since Dixon announced an April commitment. All 11 picks are currently for the Wildcats, making them the heavy favorites heading into the announcement.
The 6’7” Dixon is ranked #114 in the 247 Composite and rated 4-stars. He’s a highly skilled prospect that can play both inside and out, but he’ll likely need some time to refine his body if he’s to reach his full potential.
With Eric Paschall set to leave the program following next season, landing Dixon before the first April Live Period would be a great start to the 2019 class.
