The class of 2018 has really begun to see their recruitment pick up as a whole this spring. Programs have all but closed the door on 2016, and some are looking to get an early jump on the rising junior class. 

One of the players who helped himself the most this year was Paul VI/Team Takeover wing Brandon Slater. After being a key cog for a loaded PVI squad, he has taken a more featured role with Takeover and proven that this season was more than just a hot stretch from the 6-foot-5 wing. 

His length and athleticism has made him an absolute terror in transition, and his halfcourt offense has improved drastically in the past few months as well. For that reason, a number of high-major programs have extended offers, while two schools especially interest the Virginia native. 

Villanova, WVU, UConn and Syracuse are the latest schools to show interest in him, while Louisville, Miami, Maryland, USC, Virginia Tech and UCF have all offered as well. 

Slater named two programs that especially interested him. Villanova and West Virginia have both turned up the heat on their early pursuit of the talented wing.

"Coach Wright saw me last summer and said that he really liked my game and that they would be following me, them winning a title has an effect on how I think of them for sure" he said of the defending champions. 

Meanwhile, his interest in the Mountaineers is more based on what they do as a program.

"West Virginia is a fast-paced team and I'm a fast-paced player, I feel like I would fit in really well there," said Slater.
