According to Evan Daniels of Scout.com, Adam Zagoria of Zagsblog.com, and the CP3 AAU team's Twitter page, Sanford High School senior Chris Wilson is Saint Joseph's first signing in the class of 2011. I generally don't like to post news like this without multiple sites reporting it, but this story sounds legitimate to me.
For the past year, Wilson has been considered one of, if not the top, point guard target of the Saint Joseph's coaching staff. At 6'2, Wilson is a strong true point guard. While so many guards today are combination guards, Wilson sounds like he is in the mold of a true pass-first point guard. After signing one of the best recruiting classes in school history in 2010, the SJU coaching staff knew that it needed to find itself a true point guard in 2011. Aside from Chris Wilson, they were looking at Elijah Carter, Juan'ya Green, Devin Coleman, and a few others. If these reports are true, the staff found their man in 2011.
Wilson announced a few days ago that he had a top 5 list of schools, featuring Boston College, Old Dominion, Clemson, Stanford, and Saint Joseph's. It sounds like Wilson knew at the time where he would be playing his college basketball.
Check back throughout the day as more news and information leaks out on this signing.
