Waynesboro (Pa.) linebacker Forrest Rhyne has verbally committed to the Villanova Wildcats. Rhyne announced the decision on Thursday morning.

The commitment comes just two days after Villanova extended a scholarship offer to Rhyne. He’s a 6’2” 230 lb. linebacker rated 2-stars by 247. He recorded 151 tackles, 33 TFL and 3.5 sacks. He’s a downhill tackling machine, very much in the mold of recently graduated All-American Don Cherry.

Rhyne is the fourth verbal commitment in Villanova’s 2017 class (and second this week!), joining QB Kyle McCloskey, RB Chris Chukwuneke and WR Julian Liaci.

Here are his junior season highlights:
