Jay Wright and Villanova picked up an elite point guard on Wednesday. The 26th ranked player in ESPN’s 100, Jahvon Quinerly announced his commitment via Twitter.

Jahvon Quinerly was initially an Arizona commit. After the FBI Scandal news came out, he re-opened his commitment. He then chose Villanova over schools such as Oklahoma, Oregon, Rutgers, and Seton Hall.

Quinerly, the 6-foot-2 McDonald’s All-American point guard from Hudson Catholic in New Jersey becomes Villanova’s third commit in the class of 2018. He joins 4-stars Cole Swider and Brandon Slater in the Wildcats’ class.

With Jalen Brunson expected to go to the NBA, Quinerly’s commitment comes as a major pickup for Jay Wright. It isn’t often that Villanova gets the high-level recruits, so Quinerly will be revered for the Wildcats. With many important players expected to return, and now having a very good recruiting class, look for Villanova to be amongst the top of college basketball again next year.
