Report: Fordham Transfer Eric Paschall Expected to Commit to Villanova

So much for taking that Providence visit. Fordham transfer Eric Paschall is expected to announce a commitment to Villanova on Friday, per a report by Adam Zagoria. Paschall got permission to contact school following the firing of Fordham coach Tom Pecora. Since that time Paschall and his father Juan have visited Villanova and Florida and the elder Paschall told me no decision would be made until they visited Providence. Apparently something changed on that front. Bob Simon going to Alabama may have played a role but I’ve been told that Cooley also has a good connection with the Paschall’s, so it was a little puzzling to me that a visit never happened.

Paschall was the Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Year in his only season at Fordham and will have to sit out the 2015-16 season at Villanova, per NCAA transfer rules. He will have 3 years of eligibility remaining with the Wildcats and will only turn 19 this November. This is a very good pickup for Jay Wright and the year off should allow Paschall to develop him body and game to get ready for the jump up to the Big East in 2016-17.
