Nova lands physical 2015 F Delaney

Villanova got off to an early start in constructing its 2015 recruiting class Wednesday afternoon, landing a verbal commitment from 6-foot-8 power forward Tim Delaney (Mullica Hill, N.J./Pitman).

Delaney is a rugged and hard-nosed post who falls in line with the strong emphasis Villanova has placed on toughness and character in its recent recruiting classes.

The New Jersey native and four-star prospect visited Villanova’s campus unofficially this past weekend and had also taken unofficial visits to Indiana and Butler in recent weeks, while also receiving wide-ranging interest and early offers from a number of other NCAA powers.

Delaney’s commitment is an important one for Villanova not just because he gives them an early start to the 2015 class, but also because the fit appears to be an especially good one for both player and program alike.
