Peters Township’s Josh Casilli committed Thursday to Penn, choosing an Ivy League path that was wildly successful for another WPIAL wide receiver just a few years ago.
Casilli chose the Quakers from a list of offers that included Duquesne, Robert Morris, Air Force, Cornell, Holy Cross, Rhode Island, Lafayette, Sacred Heart, Columbia, Maine, Albany, William & Mary, Youngstown State, UMass, Lehigh, Fordham and Dartmouth.
He announced his decision in Twitter.
The 6-foot, 180-pound rising senior had a team-high 50 receptions and 880 receiving yards last season. He scored 14 times.
Penn found tremendous success with South Fayette’s Justin Watson, who posted three consecutive 1,000-yard receiving seasons with the Quakers from 2015-17 and graduated as the team’s all-time leader in receptions (286), receiving yards (3,777), receiving touchdowns (34) and all-purpose yards (4,116). Watson now plays for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Casilli was honored Tuesday as a TribLive HSSN Preseason All-Star at Kennywood Park.
