Omari Spellman, a 6-8 junior post player from the MacDuffie School in Springfield, Mass., honored his mother’s birthday by announcing his commitment to Villanova on Twitter.

Spellman is ranked No. 17 overall in the ESPN 60 and is considered the No. 5 center in the class according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
