It’s official. Maurice Sutton is headed to Villanova.
“I’m going to be a Villanova Wildcat next year,” Sutton said at his press conference this afternoon. “It was a great opportunity. I came there, they really grew on me. Coach Jay Wright really impressed me, he really made an amazing impression on me. I love him as a coach and I felt like it was a great family atmosphere for me. I felt like that is what God wanted me to do.”
Sutton said he liked Villanova’s style of play. The Wildcats run with the best of the Big East which is, unlike the Big Ten, a conference where up-tempo basketball is the norm.
I haven’t gotten any confirmation from Maurice Sutton’s press conference, but there are more and more reports coming out that he’s headed to Villanova.
