Just a little less than a week ago, Villanova struck in the class of 2015 when they landed big man Tim Delaney.
Tuesday night, they struck again -- this time in the class of 2014 -- when Mikal Bridges committed after an unofficial visit according to his summer coach Rob Brown of Team Final.
A 6-foot-6 small forward from Malvern (Pa.) Great Valley, Bridges is an intriguing four-star prospect.

Relatively unknown headed into the spring but ranked No. 99 in the Rivals150 for 2014, Bridges played up to his ranking and has likely earned himself a boost.
Long and lanky, Bridges is a thin wing with burgeoning perimeter skills. He is a pretty confident jump shooter with legitimate three-point range. He rebounds well, runs the floor and is a kid who is young for his class (still only 16) that appears to be growing.
Should Bridges continue to grow, he can develop into a big wing or even into a stretch four with valuable perimeter skills. He does have to get stronger and continue to tighten up his handle, but Bridges is a player to keep an eye on.
Bridges is the first player from the class of 2014 to commit to Jay Wright and the Wildcats.
