Rivals.com is the most-bullish on Sheedy, rating him as a three-star prospect, likely to play at offensive tackle. 247Sports, meanwhile has him listed as a 2-star recruit. He will likely be asked to add some bulk once he arrives on the Main Line, to give him the size to compete against some of the CAA's bigger linemen.
"It was a process that went a couple of days," Sheedy told PennLive.com. "There wasn't that one moment when it just struck me. I ended up picking Villanova because of its coaching staff, because of its success in the NCAA and because its a great academic school."
Current Villanova center Ross Hall is also a product of Lancaster Catholic.
