Michael Gilchrist, a basketball player at St. Patrick High School in Elizabeth, N.J., who commutes from Somerdale, Camden County, will make an unofficial visit to Villanova on Saturday.
Scout.com and Rivals.com rank the 6-foot-7 junior swingman as the nation's top prospect, regardless of class.
Gilchrist, who turned 16 on Saturday, also made an unofficial visit to Villanova last year.
