Armwood commits

2009 recruit Isaiah Armwood has committed to attend Villanova. He is a 6'7 small forward/power forward from Montrose Christian in Baltimore, MD. Armwood joins Maalik Wayns as the second commitment for 2009. Transfer Taylor King will also be eligible to play in 2009. Armwood will add some size and athleticism to a guard-heavy team. He has an inside/outside game reminiscent of Curtis Sumpter. It is a good sign to see Jay Wright getting top recruits that aren't guards to commit to Villanova.
