Class of 2016 forward Dylan Painter has committed to Villanova.
The Hershey, Pennsylvania native announced his intentions to play for head coach Jay Wright and the back-to-back Big East regular season champions just over a half hour ago on his personal Twitter account:
Beyond excited to announce that I am going to be joining the Villanova Basketball family! Thanks for everyone's support #NovaNation— Dylan Painter (@dpaint4234) September 16, 2015
Painter is the second commitment for 'Nova in the Class of 2016 as he joins center Omari Spellman (North Royalton, Ohio) who committed to the Wildcats this past February.
The 6-foot-10, 230-pounder told SNY's Adam Zagoria he knew the decision he would make yesterday:
"I thought that was the best place for me to be the best Dylan Painter I can be," he said.
