Villanova Signs 18 Players To National Letters of Intent

After a poor 2011 in which the Villanova football team won only two games the entire season, they announced today that they have signed 18 players to national letters of intent. Included in the class is 17 high school seniors and one junior college transfer in defensive back Marc Mauro who is already enrolled and will have four years of eligibility. Another notable is linebacker Corey Majors, who was originally in the 2011 signing class, but decided to go to prep school, and decided to stay with Villanova in an impressive show of loyalty by both player and school.

All in all, nine states are represented, and it seems that Villanova is again recruiting Florida, which they were able to do quite successfully in the years running up to the national championship. With the abundance of talent in Florida, having a recruiting footprint there is always a good thing. As for expectations for this recruiting class: I have none, and you shouldn't have any either. Just because someone isn't listed on Rivals doesn't mean that you should have any cause for concern. Ben Ijalana wasn't listed on any recruiting service and he wound up being a second round pick, so you never know.
