This page is dedicated to any and all recruiting matters related to Villanova basketball. For an explanation of how the NCAA recruiting process works as well as important dates to keep in mind, take a gander at the very bottom of this post.

Below you will see recruiting depth charts for both the 2019 and 2020 seasons, with each chart divided into two separate categories: one category for recruits that have received a formal scholarship offer and the other category for recruits that the Wildcats have shown interest in, but have not yet offered a scholarship.

NCAA Recruiting Process, Explained:

After months and sometimes years of recruiting, reclassifying, committing, decommitting and recommitting, college basketball recruits have one week in early November in which they can sign a national letter of intent (NLI) to play at one of the three division levels the NCAA recognizes. This is known as the “late signing period”. In addition to a four-week period in the spring, known as the “early signing period”, basketball recruits may only sign their NLIs during these NCAA-mandated periods. Once a student-athlete signs his NLI, he is contractually bound to the university with which he signed and can officially be counted on the roster for the following season (barring academic ineligibility).

A national letter of intent is a contract between a student-athlete and a college or university that once signed, ensures the student-athlete will attend said institution for one academic year in exchange for financial assistance. A student-athlete signing his NLI essentially means he is ending the recruiting process. Once he signs, other NLI member institutions are no longer allowed to contact the student-athlete with regard to their recruitment.

All of the same stipulations for the early signing period apply to the late signing period, which runs April 17-May 15. Basketball has the early period really for the benefit of the student-athletes. Signing an NLI ends the recruiting pressure most high-profile recruits face, so signing early allows them to get that part of their future out of the way and focus on enjoying their final season of high school basketball. Student-athletes who wait until spring to sign are subject to all the stress the recruiting process can bring throughout the season. Student-athletes who choose to sign late also run the risk of the programs they are most interested in no longer having a scholarship available for them (only 13 are allowed per program) after the early period ends.
