New Date Set For Announcement

Charlie Villanueva is all finished with his official visit schedule. The 6-9 small forward is probably going into lock down mode and plans on making a decision next week.

Nov. 5 Is Decision Day

Villanova was the last of Charlie Villanueva's official visits. By his account, the trip to the Main Line went very well.

"I enjoyed Villanova. It was good out there. I had fun and went to Hoop Mania. I know mostly all of the players on the team so I felt really comfortable."

In case you've been out of the loop for a long time, the final schools are Illinois, Indiana, Seton Hall and Villanova. Don't expect any leaks from the Villanueva camp this week. He's already got the neutral lingo down.

No way he acknowledges a leader before the announcement. "Right now, I don't [have one]. Right now all four of them are pretty much equal. It's going to be pretty much a tough decision.

"They'll all still in a strong position."

Villanueva and Luol Deng are scheduled to hold a press conference together when they'll announce their decisions. Said press conference was going to be next Monday but Blair does not have school that day. So, the press conference is going to be on Tuesday, Nov. 5.

Villanueva said and Luol will make decisions on an individual basis. "We pretty much talk about it everyday. It's going to be an individual decision. He's going to make the decision for him and I'll make it myself."
