Josh Hart, a 6-foot-4 swingman from Sidwell Friends School in Washington, said Wednesday he has chosen to play college basketball at Villanova starting next fall.
Hart, who averaged 20 points, 11.6 rebounds, and 3.3 assists last season for Sidwell, chose Villanova over Penn State and Rutgers. He has been rated among ESPN's top 100 high school seniors and was ranked 18th among the nation's shooting guards by Scout.com.
"It was tough just because of the relationship I had with all the coaches over the last week or two," Hart said in a telephone interview. "It was tough and stressful, and now I'm happy that it's over."
