Ott To Hold Thursday Conference

On Thursday afternoon, center Andrew Ott will hold a press conference to announce his collegiate intentions.

The Villanova Wildcats appear to be on the verge of adding their third commitment from the Class of 2006. According to a source, Andrew Ott will select the Villanova Wildcats on Thursday at a noon press conference in the student center at Germantown Academy.

Scout.com confirmed the choice with a source and a newspaper in Philadelphia, citing sources, reported the Villanova commitment on Monday.

"I guess [the paper] just came to that conclusion because my coach told me not to tell anyone," Ott told Scout.com. Ott said that he is considering Purdue, St. Joe's, Penn State, Xavier and Villanova.

"Originally I thought I'd wait for the summer just to see what other schools would offer me," Ott said Monday morning. "Then, I decided that even if they did, it wouldn't even matter because I'd want to go to the same school."
