Villanova has landed another top 50 recruit, its third, for the class of 2012.
Sources have confirmed that the Wildcats received a verbal commitment from Daniel Ochefu, a 6-9 center from West Chester’s Westtown School. According to ESPN, he’s the 20th-rated prospect in the class, and No. 7 at his position.
He joins two other local juniors who already had announced their intentions: Savon Lloyd-Goodman, a 6-5 wing forward from Academy of the New Church, and 6-3 point guard Ryan Arcidiacano, of Neshaminy High.
Ochefu, who is from Nigeria, also was considering Temple, Georgetown and Texas.
