Hall of Fame coach Jay Wright has officially added another member to the Villanova Recruiting Class of 2022, with the commitment of Cam Whitmore. The 6’6” wing made the announcement on CBS Sports HQ on Thursday selecting the ‘Cats over North Carolina and Illinois.
Whitmore narrowed his list of offers down to the trio of schools at the end of August and took an official visit to ‘Nova on Sept. 17, after previously visiting the other two finalist schools in August.
The senior out of Severn, MD, who plays for Team Melo on the EYBL circuit, has burst on the scene in 2021 having jumped from outside of the Top 100 to a fringe Five Star at #27 in the 24/7 Rankings (and #46 by ESPN) following the Peach Jam. Whitmore earned Baltimore Catholic League Player of the Year honors last season. The newest Wildcat, who is “always in attack mode” averaged 22.0 points and 11.7 rebounds a game last year.
Whitmore becomes the third piece in Villanova’s 2022 Recruiting Class. He joins commitments from Mark Armstrong (South Orange, N.J./St. Peter’s Prep) and most recently, Brendan Hausen (Amarillo, Texas/Amarillo).
