ALLENTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA -- One player who continues to show strides in his overall game is Charlie Villanueva, an agile 6-8 forward from Blair Academy in New Jersey. A rising junior, Villanueva has shown he has the skills to have the complete offensive package.
Villanueva put these skills on display this past weekend at the Lehigh Valley Jam Fest in Pennsylvania. He helped his AAU team, the Long Island Panthers, win the tournament.
Charlie runs the floor well and can pull up and take the jumper. He can score points in bunches and finishes with authority. He is likely to be one of the top rated players in the class of 2003.
Syracuse, North Carolina, Ohio State, Providence, Georgia Tech, UCLA, St. John's, Seton Hall, Rutgers, Villanova, Kentucky, Connecticut, Georgetown are just a few schools that Villanueva has said he is interested in. He is wide open since it is early in his recruiting process.
