VLLANOVA'S coaches just got off the road from the hectic coast-to-coast summer recruiting period and were greeted by a very nice announcement from Baltimore combo guard Phil Booth. A top 100 national recruit (78 by Rivals), Booth has given a verbal commitment, the second for the 'Nova Class of 2014. Great Valley High forward Mikal Bridges committed earlier in the summer. "I had a good relationship with the coaches," Booth said. "They've been with me from Day 1. I thought this was the best fit for me. " Booth's father, also Phil, was a very good player at Northeast High before going on to play for Fang Mitchell at Coppin State in Baltimore.
