Villanova Football has landed a commitment from placekicker/punter Drew Kresge of Boone High School (Birdsboro, Pa.). Kresge announced his decision on Twitter Sunday:
Kresge was named to All-Berks County teams for both placekicking and punting, giving Villanova a flexible option next season. John Hinchen is expected back to punt and is coming off his second straight excellent season so he should start there. Gerard Smith provided some hope late in the season, but given the frustrations of the past two seasons it will likely be an open competition between he, Steve Weyler and Kresge in fall camp to win the kicking job.
Here are Kresge's senior season higlights (kickers are people too!). He's got nice form and gets good height on his kicks, but as with most kickers at this level, will need to work on distance if Villanova is to get a reliable option for the future.
