Corey Reeder, an Inquirer first-team all-South Jersey wide receiver from Pemberton has become the latest area standout to make a verbal commitment to Villanova.
Reeder is on his visit this weekend and will be coming home today. He committed earlier this morning.
“It’s a great environment here and I’ll get a great education,” Reeder said by phone.
This past season the 6-foot-3, 185-pound Reeder had 65 receptions for 989 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Reeder also had made an official visit to Rhode Island.
Other South Jersey players who have committed to Villanova are St. Augustine quarterback Dustin Thomas, Mainland defensive lineman Antoine Lewis, Delsea running back Austin Medley and Oakcrest defensive back Craig James.
High school recruits can officially sign a letter of intent on Feb. 3.
