Villanova Basketball Recruiting: Jay Wright visits Northfield Mount Hermon

Wright watched players spanning 3 classes.

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Per ESPN's Adam Finkelstein, Villanova Wildcats head coach Jay Wright was in Massachusetts today taking in the Northfield Mount Hermon practice.

Here's a bit of background on each of those players:

Kellan Grady (2017) - A 3-star 6'4" guard, Grady owns a ton of offers - with his best being from Big East rival Xavier. A big and rangy guard, he's exactly what the Wildcats have been targeting in the backcourt. ESPN has a nice scouting report on Grady. He's thought to be a Davidson lean at this point.

Andrew Platek (2017) - Platek is a 6'4" guard who has an impressive list of offers, but mostly in the mid-major and Ivy range like his teammate Grady. His best are from Miami (FL), Penn State and Rutgers. He's a sharpshooter, plain and simple.

Tomas Murphy (2017) - A 4-star 6'8" forward, everybody is projecting Murphy to Florida. Maryland and Boston College have both offered as well. You may know him as the younger brother of Erik and Alex, who both went to Florida. He's got a highly polished post game - this is definitely somebody to keep an eye on.

Nate Laszewski (2018) - Another to keep an eye on, the 6'7" Laszewski finished the summer strong on the AAU circuit. His father played at Wisconsin, and his sister is on the basketball team there as well. The Badgers are likely the team to beat.

Max Lorca (2019) - Penn State has already offered Lorca, a Brooklyn native. He's just a freshman, but already being regarded as one of the best players in New England.
