Omari Spellman commits to Villanova

The Wildcats got their first commitment from the Class of 2016, and did so in a big way by landing the No. 17 player on the 2016 ESPN 60.

4-star center (per 247sports) Omari Spellman of North Royalton, Ohio has committed to Villanova University.

The 17th ranked player on the 2016 ESPN 60, Spellman has chosen to play for the 'Cats over such schools as The University of Arizona, The University of Connecticut, The University of Kentucky as well as Ohio State University, St. John's University and West Virginia University, among others.

The commitment was announced by ESPN's Adam Finkelstein just a short while ago.

Spellman, 6-foot-8 and 270 lbs., and the No. 2 player in the state of Ohio, is the first commitment for Jay Wright in the Class of 2016.
