Today is the final day of the late signing period, and it looks like Villanova will pick up a recruit in the class of 2008 after all.

Maurice Sutton, a 6-10 center from Maryland, is expected to announce his choice to attend Villanova at a press conference today, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.

According to the PDN, Sutton was also considering a scholarship offer from Tom Crean of Indiana before deciding on Villanova.

Sutton sang Villanova's praises to Yahoo Sports' Justin Young this weekend:

Villanova is a great fit for me. They have all five guys coming back next year but I really like Villanova. Coach Wright, he really took me under his wing. I love coach Wright. I see myself in their offense and defense, too

There is speculation that Sutton may redshirt his freshman year at Villanova to add muscle to his 6'10'' frame. Right now, Sutton looks to be more of a defensive presence than an offensive weapon.

Sean Donovan, the Villanova video maverick, released a new highlight reel this week that spans the history of Villanova basketball.

The video, called "For Those About to Rock," is a six-minute romp through the archives of Wildcat basketball. The video is set to the AC/DC anthem which shares it name.

The highlight compilation features incredible black-and-white to color transition technology. Donovan has done it again, hitting another home run with well timed cuts in pace with the music.

You can watch the video below in the embedded YouTube player.
