Sources close to Charlie Villanueva (right), the highly sought after combo forward from Queens, New York, deny a report that the talented 2003 recruit was going to take a trip to Indiana.
The report said Villanueva was going to visit Indiana with his teammate Luol Deng. However, sources close to Villanueva tell us that Charlie did think about taking a trip because he and Luol don't have any visits set up together.
Blair Academy has school on Saturday so Villanueva decided to opt not to take the trip because he didn't want to miss more school. Villanueva has three official visits planned.
Villanueva, who had a rock solid summer, can spray you with jumpers from beyond the three or hammer you with a thundering dunk in transition. He runs the floor well and is agile enough to play several positions on the college level.
Charlie is going to visit Illinois on September 27th, Seton Hall on October 4th, and Villanova on October 25th. Then he is going to probably make a college decision.
Villanueva should have a big year at Blair. He is one of the obvious candidates for the McDonald's All American game.
