Make it two! In addition to Patrick Lawler, the Villanova Wildcats also picked up a verbal commitment from DB Nowoola Awopetu on Sunday! The 5'11" 185 lb. WR/DB from Staten Island, N.Y. popped for the Wildcats after taking an official visit to campus this weekend.

Awopetu also had an offer from Wagner, and was just offered by Villanova on Wednesday. He played both wide receiver and cornerback in high school. In addition to being a future All-Name Team member, he will be playing on the defensive side of the ball for the Wildcats. He also appears to be a relative of former NFL star Adewale Ogunleye!
