Providence received a major Christmas present from hometown five-star prospect Ricardo Ledo.
Ledo, who is attending South Kent (Conn.) Prep School, couldn't pass up the opportunity to come back to his hometown and play in the Big East.
"I like that Providence is so close to my home," Ledo told Rivals.com. "Also, from day one I will be on the court."
Providence has made it clear to Ledo, who also considered Kentucky, Louisville and UConn, what role they want him to play for them.
"They want me to score," he said.
The No. 7 ranked prospect in the 2012 Rivals150, Ledo joins Joshua Fortune in Providence's 2012 recruiting class.
