Scout's Take: Nova off to good '16 start with Omari Spellman


ESPN 60 power forward Omari Spellman made a verbal commitment Friday to Villanova, giving the Wildcats one of the premier power forwards in the 2016 national class.

Why he committed: Spellman has been to Villanova unofficially on multiple occasions, the last of which came two weeks ago when he and his mother attended the Georgetown game. His commitment Friday coincided with his mother's birthday.
