ESPN No. 48 ranked high school junior Cole Swider has committed to Villanova.

 

The 6-8 forward averaged 26.5 points, 11.2 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and 1.9 steals this season for St. Andrews School (Barrington, RI), when he was named Rhode Island’s Gatorade Player of the Year.

 

“Everything just felt right,” Swider told the Providence Journal of choosing the Wildcats. “I know it’s going to sound a little corny, but I just felt it in my heart when I went down to campus and talked with [‘Nova head] Coach [Jay] Wright.”

 

VUhoops.com’s Chris Lane said that Swider will make an impact at the school right away.

 

“Whereas defense has typically gotten freshman on to the court early in their Villanova careers, it will be Swider’s offense that will make him tough to keep on the bench,” wrote Lane. “He’s one of the truly elite shooters in this class and has great size at 6’8” on the wing.”

 

“He’s the prototypical stretch 4 in Villanova’s system,” Lane added. “He has polished shooting mechanics with a quick and high release point. He’s also demonstrated great off-the-ball movement which should make him deadly in Villanova’s offense.”

 

The Wildcats beat out the likes of Duke, Indiana, Syracuse, and Michigan to land Swider.

 

At Villanova, Swider will join fellow 2018 recruit No. 73 Brandon Slater.
