Angelo Brizzi commits to Villanova

Jay Wright and the Villanova Wildcats staff landed another big pledge when 3-star guard Angelo Brizzi verballed on Monday evening.

Brizzi came onto the national radar this Spring right as the pandemic began, which probably doesn’t do his #117 national ranking justice. Even with the AAU season cancelled, Brizzi has collected offers from Villanova, Arizona, Michigan, Georgetown, LSU, Wake Forest and California after mostly being on the mid-major range entering the Spring.

Brizzi attends Highland (Va.) and has good size for the backcourt at 6’3”. He’s already a plus shooter and passer and isn’t afraid to attack the rim or pull up from anywhere as one of the top shooters in the class. He also shows off a great demeanor and attitude on the court which likely sold the Wildcats staff on him even without the traditional recruiting process. They were one of the first high major schools to offer him and it has paid off in kind.

With Brizzi’s commitment, Villanova can now turn its focus squarely on Trevor Keels to round out their 2021 recruiting class.
