The upcoming Villanova recruiting class has one question yet to be answered. Is Friends’ Central’s Amile Jefferson bound to be a Wildcat? If the answer is yes, Nova will have one of the top classes in the nation as they scoop up the top four-premier prospects from the Philadelphia area.
The six-foot-seven forward is ranked 26th in the class of 2012 by ESPN and would join the already committed Savon Goodman of Academy of the New Church, Ryan Arcidiacono of Neshaminy and Daniel Ochefu of Westtown.
All four played at last month’s NBA Top 100 camp at the University of Virginia, where Jefferson finished as the camp’s top scorer with a 20.8 per game average. Arcidacono said the other three were working their best throughout the camp to persuade him to commit to Nova.
“Me, Savon, Ochefu and hopefully Amile, I’m trying to push that,” said Arcidacono. “It’s just been great. I got to room with them at the NBA Camp and got to develop a better relationship with them. Just been talking to them about how sweet it’s going to be and how fun it’s going to be to play together.”
