Nico Mannion sets three officials, talks recruiting timeline— Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) August 17, 2018
Mannion is down to 4 schools, but has only set official visits to Arizona, Marquette and Villanova. He’s still working on the Duke visit. The visits are as follows:
- Marquette: October 5-8
- Villanova: October 11-13
- Arizona: October 19-21
Mannion confirmed to Zagoria that he’ll also head to Arizona for the Red-White game on October 14th.
Here’s what Mannion had to say about Villanova:
“I was actually talking to JQ [Jahvon Quinerly] the other day and he says he loves it up there. He said if you want to be a pro, this is the place to be because they work. You saw Donte [DiVincenzo] wasn’t projected very high and then he ended up going No. 17, so they’re really big on just getting in the gym and working every day and getting better. And obviously they have the two national titles in the last three years, which is huge. They have a great thing going there.”
Mannion says he wants to commit by the new year, but with OVs happening in the Fall he could commit sooner if he likes what he sees on his visits.
