Long Island running back is Nova's fifth recruit


Stacey Bedell is Villanova’s latest football commitment.

The running back at the William Floyd High School (Long Island, N.Y.) announced his plans to become a Wildcat Friday, shortly after Oakcrest defensive back Mark Clements committed to ’Nova.  As a result, Bedell, who will become a senior in the fall, is the Wildcats fifth commitment for the Class of 2012.

The 5-foot-9, 175-pounder chose ’Nova over scholarship offers James Madison and Fordham. He was also being recruited to play at Army.

Bedell had 208 carries for 1,658 yards and 18 touchdowns last season. He also had 12 receptions for 177 yards and two scores.

About this blog
Joe Juliano first visited the Palestra in 1970 after entering Temple University and became hooked for life on Big Five basketball. He'll always go with that name, figuring if the Big Ten can have 12 teams, why can't the Big Five have six?

Juliano joined the Inquirer in 1985 after 10 years at United Press International and has covered college sports for most of that time. His current beats are Villanova basketball, Penn State football, golf and the Penn Relays. Reach Joe at
