Matt Brown, a 5'9" 175 lb. WR/RB/DB from Malvern Prep, has committed to the Villanova Wildcats as a preferred walk-on for 2014. Brown, who committed to Andy Talley in November, confirmed his commitment to VUhoops early Tuesday afternoon.
Brown was recruited by Assistant Head Coach/Offensive Line Coach Mark Ferrante. Ferrante offered Brown a spot on the team in late November, and Brown jumped at the opportunity as Villanova had been his first choice for college all along. As a preferred walk-on in the FCS' reduced scholarship structure, , Brown will have the opportunity to earn a full scholarship with good performance down the road at Villanova.
Despite playing primarily as both a running back and a defensive back for Malvern Prep in high school, Brown will be lining up as a slot receiver for Villanova, while also being thrown in the mix to return punts.
Matt Brown becomes the 10th known verbal commitment for Villanova in 2014. You can check out Matt Brown's highlights on Hudl, and welcome him to 'Nova Nation in the comments!
