ESPN’s 12th ranked prospect for the 2019 recruiting year is headed to Villanova.

Bryan Antoine committed to the Wildcats today despite interest from Duke, Florida, Kentucky, and Kansas, becoming the highest ranked recruit to choose Nova since 2007. That’s what a pair of national titles will do for you.

From the ESPN story:

The 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Ranney School (New Jersey) is among the best scorers in the class, averaging 16.6 points and shooting 41.0 percent from 3-point range on the Under Armour Association circuit for Team Rio National.

Coach Jay Wright has now reeled in at least one five-star prospect in four of the past five classes. He also now has three ESPN 100 prospects in the fold for 2019, with Antoine joining four-star guard Justin Moore (No. 48) and four-star big man Eric Dixon (No. 68) in the class.

The Wildcats are also squarely in the mix for elite big man Isaiah Stewart (No. 4), among others.

Ah good, just what Nova needs, another 41% three point shooter.

It was thought that Antoine was headed to Duke, but he will instead be taking his talents to the Main Line instead, which is a huge snag for Jay Wright. The kid has a ton of skill and I recommended checking out this mixtape after the jump:
