Tony Wroten Takes Trip to Villanova

Tony Wroten Jr.
Montlake Madness doesn’t generally report on much ado in the Twitterverse. But, wanted to point out that earlier this afternoon, UW recruit Tony Wroten mentioned on his Twitter feed that he was flying to Philadelphia, and heading to Villanova. /

The visit isn’t unexpected and looks to be an unofficial trip to see the school. A (subscriber only) report from this month’s USA basketball mini-camp on (which Wroten had to sit out, due to his knee injury) mentioned that Wroten planned to attend ‘Nova in late October, and UW for Midnight Madness.

Of course, this isn’t an official visit, since a player can’t take any of those until his senior year, but Villanova is definitely a player for Wroten, listed as the top contender for his services on ESPN, which doesn’t even list UW anymore.

It’s likely way too early with Wroten to really know which way this will ultimately go, but Villanova could certainly pose a serious threat to UW landing Wroten for their 2011 squad.

Thanks for coming!
