List of recruits visiting Villanova for Hoops Mania

New, 51 comments

Who will be on campus for the biggest recruiting event of the year?

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Villanova will ceremonially kickoff the 2014-15 basketball season on Friday night with Hoops Mania. The event is primarily used to introduce the men's and women's basketball teams to the student body and typically features a dunk contest, 3-point contest, and a mystery musical guest.

Jay Wright will also use the event to showcase the Villanova basketball program to a host of prospects in the hopes of luring them to the Main Line for their college careers. Just going off of the recruiting service rankings of these names, the staff has done an amazing job of getting these kids on campus.

Another thing to note - The 8EYE Classic is scheduled for Friday night at Ben Franklin High School. It wouldn't be a surprise see those guys swing over to the Pavilion after the event even if they haven't confirmed attendance yet.
