The Villanova basketball program landed big on the recruiting trail Wednesday morning.
In a video announcement on social media, five-star point guard Jahvon Quinerly announced that he has committed to the Wildcats.
The New Jersey prospect was previously committed to Arizona, but decommitted after being linked to the FBI’s corruption investigation. Emanuel ‘Book’ Richardson, who recruited Quinerly to Arizona, was one of the assistants arrested in the probe.
Quinerly is the No. 5-ranked point guard in the nation and the No. 25 player overall.

Despite being linked to the FBI investigation into corruption in college basketball, Villanova is confident that Quinerly will be eligible to play next season.
Quinerly is joined by four-star forwards Cole Swider and Brandon Slater as members of the 2018 recruiting class for Villanova.
The Wildcats, currently ranked No. 3 in the nation, return to the court on Wednesday night against the Providence Friars. Tip-off is set for 7:00 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1.
