Souderton running back commits to Villanova

Souderton High School running back Javon White gave an oral commitment Wednesday to play football at Villanova.

White, who will be a senior in the fall, became the Wildcats sixth commitment for the Class of 2012.

The 5-foot-10, 195-pound speedster rushed for 825 yards and nine touchdowns in a limited role last season. He, however, covered the 40-yard dash in 4.3 seconds in a recent one-day camp at Villanova.

White joins William Floyd (N.Y.) running back Stacey Bedell, Oakcrest defensive back Mark Clements, Holy Spirit offensive lineman Nico D'Angelo, Woodstown offensive lineman Jake Prus and Danbury (Conn.) linebacker Austin Calitro in the recruiting class.

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 jjuliano@phillynews.com.
