Eric Paschall Commits to Villanova

Fordham’s Eric Paschall committed to Villanova today, ending his search for a new home. Paschall was also considering Providence, Florida, Kansas, and returning to Fordham before making his choice.

The A-10 Rookie of the Year averaged 15.9 points per game and 5.5 rebounds this season. Paschall was one of the bright spots of an otherwise dull Fordham season. The Rams finished 10-21, concluding the season losing four of their last five games. Head coach Tom Pecora was fired at the end of the season, resulting in Paschall to look elsewhere.

The 6’6″, 205-pound guard was a three-star recruit coming out of high school. However, it is not a true reflection of his play. It seems that wherever he goes, he excels and dominates. Paschall committed to Fordham as a junior at Dobbs Ferry High School in New York, where he was on an Eagles squad that went to the sectional finals in each of his three years there. He was named Mr. Basketball in what would be his final season at Dobbs Ferry, as he  transferred to St. Thomas More (CT) for his senior year. Paschall was named NEPSAC AAA Player of the Year. Throughout his high school years, he was a dominant player on the court, being the subject of many double teams by his opponents.

Paschall will have to sit out one year before being eligible to play, making him good to go for the 2016-17 season. He brings great athleticism and length to the guard or wing positions. Paschall does a great job of penetrating and attacking the basket. His long range shot can be hit or miss at times, but it doesn’t take away from his scoring ability. It will be interesting to see where he fits in Jay Wright’s system and is another solid pick up to add to this year’s recruiting class of incoming players.
