Keegan Sheedy has officially signed his National Letter of Intent with Villanova, the school announced this morning. The 6'5" 270 lb. Lancaster Catholic (PA) offensive lineman originally committed to Villanova late June, at the time becoming the third verbal in Villanova's 2015 class.
Sheedy chose Villanova over offers from Lafayette and Holy Cross, citing the coaching staff and Villanova's success in the FCS as the main reasons for his commitment. Sheedy has a great frame and should project at one of the tackle spots, but it may be a year or two before he's put on the strength to compete in the CAA.

Villanova has an immediate need at right tackle (where Sheedy played in high school) with the graduation of 4-year starter Vince Kowalski, but the staff has done a good job keeping the depth chart full and Sheedy shouldn't be pressed in to action too soon. More likely, he'll make his first push for consistent playing time in 2016 or 2017.
