Villanova Hoops Mania will be September 30th; it’s a big event in Villanova basketball that happens every year. I have been informed by 2018 Villanova commit Cole Swider that he and fellow 2018 commit Brandon Slater will both be taking their official visits to Hoops Mania. Both Slater and Swider are exciting pieces to the Villanova future, both I predict to be all-big east players.
2019 top 4 star prospects John Bol Ajak, Aidan Igiehon, Eric Dixon told me they would be attending the event too. Dixon informed the news to me during an exclusive interview I had with him for Philly Sports Network. 4 star 2020 prospects Lynn Greer III, Che Evans, Mikeal Jones, and Richard Springs told me recently they also will be attending Hoops mania, Evans recently had a visit to Villanova on the 23rd and so did 2019 prospect John Bol Ajak on that same day, both are big targets for the wildcats.
Villanova recently went to see 5 star center Isaiah Stewart play, Stewart is 6’8, 243 lbs and a monster inside with a 7’4 wingspan and 38 inch vertical. Indiana and Georgetown are teams in high pursuit of Stewart, During the Nike EYBL tournament, Stewart averaged 10.2 points with 9.2 rebounds at the Nike Peach Jam. The La Lumiere high school star is the the no.2 ranked player in New York and the 30th ranked player in the nation by 247 for 2019.
Villanova is high on 2019 prospect Eric Dixon and 2020 prospect Che Evans is very high on Villanova. Both could receive offers after Hoops Mania.
2019 5 stars Scottie Lewis and Bryan Antoine visited Villanova last Friday; both are top priorities for Villanova. Lewis is the no.1 player in the state of New Jersey and the no.1 ranked small forward in the 2019 class, Antoine is the no.2 player in New Jersey and no.1 combo guard in 2019. Both players could be a package deal depending the school, Lewis and Antoine are best friends and teammates on both high school and AAU teams. The no.1 duo in the nation has visited Villanova multiple times and clearly have major interest in the powerhouse program, Lewis and Antoine are also ranked 6th (Lewis) and 7th (Antoine) in the nation for 2019.
