RB Stacey Bedell Decommits From Villanova

Running back Stacey Bedell has decommitted from Villanova following Villanova's opening weekend loss to Temple. Bedell, who committed in early July, at one point said that the Villanova coaches told him the program was moving up to FBS, felt he may have rushed to a decision to soon.

"He felt he committed to Villanova too early and now he wants to be recruited by other schools." - Floyd Coach Paul Longo

Now, by all means, if you don't feel it's the right fit, explore your options. But not calling the coaches yourself to tell them you're backing out? That's a little weak.

"My Dad made the call for me," Bedell told Newsday before practice on Tuesday. "They were pretty upset. But I just didn’t think it was the place for me."

This leaves Villanova at 9 commitments for the class of 2012 recruiting cycle. Thankfully, running back is not a huge priority for the program. Best of luck to Stacey Bedell.
