With John Robertson gearing up for his final season on the Main Line, Andy Talley and his coaching staff is loading up the arsenal for the post-Robertson era.
Jack Schetelich, a 6’2″ and 185 pound quarterback from Cranford, NJ, announced his verbal commitment yesterday afternoon. In his first year as a starter for Cranford High, Schetelich proved to be a solid passer and runner. He completed 80 of his 135 pass attempts for 1,548 yards, boasting an 18-4 touchdown to interception ratio. With his legs, he ran for 1,388 yards and 25 touchdowns off of 195 carries. He was a key asset to Cranford’s run to the NJSIAA North 2 Group 3 Finals, finishing 11-1 for the season.
Schetelich also doubles as a track and field athlete, where he competes in the hurdles and as a javelin thrower. According to 247sports.com, he received interest from Army, Colgate, and Yale.
Schetelich’s dual-threat profile perfectly suits the spread offense ran by Coach Talley at Villanova. When he arrives at Villanova in the Fall of 2016, he will engage in an open competition for quarterback after Robertson leaves. By then, he will be competing against Zach Bednarczyk, Jackson Bradley, and Adeyemi DaSilva as Robertson’s successor.
