Adeyemi Da Silva has officially signed his National Letter of Intent with Villanova, the school announced this morning. The 6'3" 190 lb. Palisades Park (NJ) quarterback originally committed to Villanova late June, at the time becoming the sixth verbal commitment in Villanova's 2015 class.

Rated a 2-star player, Da Silva had offers from Coastal Carolina, Albany and Monmouth as well as some FBS interest from the likes of Boston College, Virginia, Rutgers and Temple. Classified as a dual-threat quarterback, he reports a 4.65 40-yard dash and is adept both running and throwing the football.
