Just two days after it was reported that West Chester Henderson's Bryan White was offered a football scholarship by Villanova, he has committed to play for the Wildcats. White was a second-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania pick last season on the defensive line. The Philadelphia Inquirer's Rick O'Brien broke the news this morning.

White will be the third member of his family to play for the 'Cats. His brother T.J. is a redshirt sophomore linebacker currently, and their father Ted played for Andy Talley as the program was rebooted from 1985-87.
Projected to play nose tackle for the 'Cats, the younger White checks in at 6'2" and 280-pounds. He reports a 40-yard-dash time of 5.18 seconds, a bench press of 295-pounds and a squat of 515-pounds. At Henderson, he also lined up on the offensive line, but will be a defensive specialist in college.
He was unranked on all of the major recruiting services and chose the 'Cats over offers from Navy, Bryant, Bucknell, Colgate, Fordham, Holy Cross and Monmouth.
White is Villanova's second known recruit for the 2015 class, joining running back Jarrett McClenton (Archbishop Wood), who committed on June 20th.
