Just this morning, center Dylan Painter announced via twitter that he has verbally committed to play basketball for Jay Wright and the Villanova Wildcats next fall and join their 2016 recruiting class.
The 6-foot-10 Hershey, PA native attends Hershey High School and is rated as a three-star-prospect by ESPN. He plays for Team Final and previously competed with them on the Nike EYBL circuit. During his junior year of high school, he averaged a double-double.
Painter also had offers from over 30 schools but it ultimately came down to a decision between Villanova and Penn State.
Here is a look at his sophomore season highlights: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwRW3-m1BSg
