Rising senior Jeff Wiley of Hopewell Valley (NJ) has verbally committed to the Villanova Wildcats. The 6'4" 240 TE/DE announced his decision on Twitter Wednesday night. He becomes the first verbal commitment in the class of 2016 for Andy Talley and Villanova.
Wiley's older brother Drew will be a freshmen linebacker this fall at Villanova. No doubt that the family connection made a difference in the younger Wiley making such an early commitment to the Wildcat program.
