Villanova basketball coach Jay Wright put together another terrific recruiting class. No way to know for sure which players ultimately will have the biggest impact, but anybody who has seen him play live or watched him on tape knows that freshman guard James Bell is a highlight-film athlete with serious game. Unfortunately, Bell, from Montverde (Fla.) Academy, won't be playing any basketball for at least a few months. He has stress fractures in the tibias of both legs. He will be re-evaluated in October by Villanova team orthopedic surgeon Dr. Rob Good.
