The Villanova Wildcats have added another talented player to their 2019 recruiting class. On Wednesday night, Justin Moore, a combo guard out of DeMatha Catholic High School in Maryland, committed to the Wildcats. He announced his commitment in a video that was posted on his personal Twitter account.

Moore becomes the second player that Jay Wright has gotten a commit from for the 2019 recruiting cycle. He joins Eric Dixon of Abington, Pennsylvania, who committed back on April 17.

Justin Moore is a 6-foot-4, 187-pound combo guard who ranks within the Top 60 in the Class of 2019. Ranked 58th in the country, Moore is a four-star recruit, much like his soon-to-be teammate Dixon. He ranks 8th at his position, a group headed by Archbishop Molloy (NY) combo guard Cole Anthony.

In the talent-rich state of Maryland, nobody currently rates higher than Moore. That’s a group that includes his teammate, point guard Jahmir Young, among others.

When he arrives on campus, he figures to be part of what’s already looking like a lethal backcourt. Jahvon Quinerly and Brandon Slater will comprise that group, as should Collin Gillespie and, if he doesn’t jump to the NBA beforehand, Donte DiVincenzo. Shocking that Villanova will have its fair share of great guards, right?

Villanova currently has the 4th-ranked recruiting class in the 2019 cycle and the top class in the Big East Conference. So if you were wondering if they were going to stop dominating the world... well, that will have to wait.
