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.
I am excited to announce my commitment to play basketball at Villanova University. My heart bleeds Blue and White, and I cannot wait to work on continuing the winning tradition of @NovaMBB. Go Cats ✌ #novanation— Chris Arcidiacono (@chrisarch15) April 12, 2019
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).
