Villanova is by far the smallest school left on Gavin Schilling's list of Michigan State, Minnesota, UCLA and the Wildcats. It's also the only private school and the only school on the east coast. It's not clear that any of those things are factors that will sway the coveted 6-foot-9 forward from Findlay Prep in Nevada.
He visited Villanova this week, taking in the Georgetown game on Wednesday night alongside 2013 signees Kris Jenkins and Josh Hart.
Had a great time at Villanova these past couple days. Thanks to Coach Wright, his staff and all the players who showed me a good time.— Gavin Schilling (@GSchills32) March 8, 2013
It truly felt like I was part of the Nova family during my time there. #NovaNation— Gavin Schilling (@GSchills32) March 8, 2013
Villanova is looking for another big body to play in the front court rotation next season, since Daniel Ochefu is currently the only player slated to be with the program who checks in above 6-foot-7. He has now visited all four of the schools on his list.
The above tweets seem to suggest that he left the Wells Fargo Center with a positive impression of the Wildcats' program and his potential place within it. A good sign for Jay Wright's staff going forward.
According to MLive.com, Schilling will now visit Michigan State this weekend.
