Central Catholic senior Khalil Weathers, who drew more than two dozen college football offers, announced his commitment Sunday to Penn.

The 6-foot, 190-pound cornerback had numerous Ivy League offers and was drawn there over FBS scholarships from Air Force, Akron, Army, Ball State, Buffalo, Florida International, Kent State and Navy.

Weathers had one interception this season and six as a junior. He also played wideout and running back before a late-season injury sidelined him. He rushed for 445 yards on 69 carries, including a 26-carry, 178-yard, three-touchdown effort against Norwin in Week 8.

He had 17 receptions for 87 yards.
