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:

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.
