The Villanova Wildcats’ recruiting class of 2019 is adding another player.

Chris Arcidiacono, the younger brother of Ryan Arcidiacono, announced on Friday via Twitter that he will be a Wildcat.

Arcidiacono, a 6-foot-3 guard, just finished his post-grad prep year at Perkiomen (Pa.), where he averaged 20 points per game, 6.4 rebounds per game, and 4.7 assists per game. He also shot a team-high 41.9 percent from long range.

Prior to attending Perkiomen, he enjoyed a solid career at Neshaminy (Pa.), where he scored over 1,400 career points—most notably setting a District One-record with a 51-point outing in a one-point playoff win over Lower Merion.

His brother, Ryan, just finished up his first full season with the Chicago Bulls, starting 32 of 81 games. Aside from being a 2016 National Champion, Ryan finished with over 1,600 points and 500 assists during his time at Villanova and has the school record for most games as a starter (144).

Arcidiacono is the latest commit, joining a stacked class that includes Bryan Antoine, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl, Eric Dixon, and Justin Moore.
