Five-star point guard Nico Mannion is scheduled to visit the Arizona Wildcats twice in October. They will be visiting him in September.
Arizona head coach Sean Miller and assistant coach Mark Phelps are set to visit the Mannion household at 5 p.m. on Sept. 9, according to this tweet from Christian PoP’oola (Mannion retweeted it, and this is 2018, so it must be true):
Villanova Jay Wright & George Halcovage will home visit 2019 PG Niccolo Mannion, September 9th at 1pm. Arizona Coach Miller & Phelps will also home visit at 5pm per source. @niccolomannion @wceua @PaulBiancardi #esp100 #whistle— Christian PoP'oola (@ChrisPoPoola) August 25, 2018
That is four hours after Villanova head coach Jay Wright and company will be making their own in-home visit.
In case you missed it, Mannion’s four finalists are Arizona, Villanova, Duke and Marquette. He has scheduled three official visits so far.
The Phoenix native will visit Marquette on Oct. 5-8, Villanova on Oct. 11-13, and Arizona on Oct. 19-21. Mannion will also unofficially visit Arizona for the Red-Blue Game on Oct. 14.
Arizona continues to be the perceived frontrunner in Mannion’s recruitment, accounting for 13 of the 14 Crystal Ball predictions submitted.
247Sports composite rankings peg the 6-foot-3 guard as the No. 1 point guard in the 2019 class, making him UA’s top priority in this recruiting cycle.
