After attending several summer camps, three-star Chris Polony of Whitehall (Pa.) became one of the top quarterback prospects in Pennsylvania this recruiting season. While he had a few options going into his senior season, Polony decided to end his recruitment with a commitment to an in-state program.
"I committed to Villanova before the season started," said Polony. "I got offered at their one-day camp in June and I committed before the season started to get it out of the way so that I didn't have to deal with that during the season."
Polony, 6-foot-3 and 200 pounds, further discussed his decision and the timing of it.
"I just felt that Nova was the best fit for me, both as a school and for football, so I didn't feel the need to wait it out any longer," said Polony.
One specific aspect of the Villanova program especially impressed Polony.
"The first thing that stood out was the connection that I had with the coaching staff from the first time we met," said Polony.
While he has yet to take his official visit to Villanova, he has been on campus this fall.
"I haven't taken my official visit there yet, but I have gone down twice to watch a game and once to tour the campus," said Polony. "I'm planning on going down for my official sometime in December."
Aside from Villanova, Polony discussed a few of the other options he had at the time of his commitment.
"The only two schools that offered me were Villanova and New Hampshire, but Wyoming, Rutgers and Virginia were interested in me," said Polony.
