Villanova added their fourth member to the football Class of 2015 when Neshaminy running back-slash-cornerback D'Andre Pollard gave Andy Talley his verbal commitment yesterday. He is projected to play as a ball-carrier out of the backfield, but also has experience returning kicks.
Congratulations to D'Andre Pollard who has verbally committed to play football at Villanova University @NovaFootball— Neshaminy Redskins (@NeshaminySkins) June 26, 2014
Pollard measures in at 5-foot-7 and 170-pounds, and was a finalist for the title of 2013 Mr. Pennsylvania Football. In addition to being a speedy option on the gridiron, he also participated on the Track & Field team for Neshaminy, running the 60 meter dash as well as the long jump and triple-jump.
He ran for 2,929 yards last season on 328 carries on a team that registered a 13-2 record and won the PIAA District 1 Class AAAA championship in Pennsylvania. Pollard had little trouble finding the endzone, scoring 39 touchdowns as a junior.
The Philadelphia Inquirer named him to the first-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania for his junior season and was also named first-team All-State Class 4A at running back.
