Oakcrest High School defensive back Mark Clements gave an oral commitment Friday to play football at Villanova.
The 5-foot-10, 175-pounder, who will be a senior this fall, accepted the scholarship offer during an unofficial visit to the Main Line campus.
As a result, Clements becomes Villanova’s fourth recruit for the Class of 2012.
He joins South Jersey offensive linemen Nico D’Angelo (Holy Spirit) and Jake Prus (Woodstown) and Austin Calitro, a linebacker at Danbury (Conn.).
Clements had seven interceptions and 34.5 tackles this past season. He also had 10 receptions for 108 yards and two touchdowns as a wideout.
