Villanova pulled in an intriguing stretch forward in the Class of 2018 on Friday as four-star prospect Cole Swider committed to the Wildcats.
The 6-foot-8 Swider is currently regarded as the No. 89 overall prospect in the Rivals.com national Class of 2018 rankings as he is coming off of a very solid spring playing with BABC in the Nike EYBL. Playing in 16 games, Swider was one of the league’s better scorers as he put up 19.4 points per game while shooting 49 percent from the field and 35 percent from three-point range. Swider also put up 6.3 rebounds and 1.6 steals per contest.
Swider is the second Villanova commitment in the Class of 2018 as they also have a pledge from four-star guard Brandon Slater. The Wildcats are certainly off to a strong start recruiting this class as they look for a potential point guard to help eventually replace Jalen Brunson.
