Holy Spirit High School linebacker Jeff Steeb verbally committed to Villanova today.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Steeb is one of the leaders of a Spartans defense that has three shutouts this season. Spirit (8-0) is No. 1 in The Press Elite 11 and the top seed in the state Non-Public II playoffs, which begin Friday.

I've covered high school sports and variety of other events and teams - including the ShopRite LPGA Classic and the Phillies - since 1993.
