Villanova football's 2012 recruiting class is filling up quickly as the coaching staff obtained their 10th commitment this weekend when Abington High School defensive end, Bryan Osei pledged to play of the Wildcats. The program will graduate 11 seniors after the 2011 season, so it's unlikely that there are many more scholarships available at this point.
The 6-2 and 230-lb Osei is rated three-stars (a 76) by ESPN, but unranked by Rivals or Scout. He had offers from Kent State, Old Dominion, Stony Brook and Temple. He chose Villanova for academics and because of a potential move to the Big East.
"I had a few Division I-A offers, but education comes before football," he told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "Also, it looks like the team will wind up playing in the Big East. That's exciting to me."
He projects to play weakside defensive end in college and has shown the ability to get off the ball and is capable of getting up-field. He does a good job of getting low and gaining leverage on his blockers – he is a physical lineman that plays with a high motor.
He has good size and a frame that will allow him to add more bulk as well. Osei is also an excellent wrestler.
Osei's older brother, David is a sophomore at Rutgers and will be their starting center this fall.
