Jay Wright and the Villanova staff are about to hit the recruiting trail

July is a time for hot dogs, fireworks, and high school basketball tournaments.


Happy Friday Nova Nation! Despite my quip yesterday about July making us think about college basketball, the July live period is a pretty important part of the recruiting trail. Expect to hear about plenty of sightings as the coaching staff traverses the country to watch the best high school players in the country.

Two of those players are already members of the Wildcat family. Eric Dixon and Justin Moore have been steadily rising up the high school rankings as it becomes more evident that Jay Wright knows how to find great players. Be sure to stay tuned as the recruiting trail heats up during the summer months.

In other “news”, Jahvon Quinerly is going to be exciting, former Nova players will be impacting NBA Summer League, and Villanova alumni are doing amazing things. Enjoy!
