For the fourth time in the last five recruiting classes, Jay Wright, the winner of two of the last three national titles, has a five-star prospect heading to Villanova.

On Tuesday, it was Bryan Antoine, the No. 11 prospect in the Class of 2019, committing to Villanova. Antoine is the third member of the 2019 recruiting class for the Wildcats, joining four-star big man Eric Dixon and four-star wing Justin Moore.

Villanova beat out Duke, who was believed to be the leader for Antoine’s services, along with Florida, Kentucky and Kansas.

Antoine is a 6-foot-5 guard that played his high school ball at the Ranney School in New Jersey. He’s a big-time scorer that made 41 percent of his threes on the UAA circuit while playing alongside fellow five-star prospect Scottie Lewis; Lewis is still considering Villanova as well.
