Senior quarterback Tenny Adewusi has made a nonbinding commitment to attend the University of Delaware on a football scholarship, Colonia High School head coach Tom Roarty announced Friday night.
A dual threat, Adewusi became the first Greater Middlesex Conference signal caller in 14 years to eclipse 1,000 yards passing and throwing in the same season.
Adewusi completed 116 of 188 (62 percent) of his passes for 1,576 yards and 16 touchdowns while being intercepted just five times for a league-leading 105.7 quarterback rating.
He also rushed for 1,070 yards and 11 scores while leading Colonia (11-1) to the North 2 Group IV final and the best record in school history.
“Delaware, from the beginning, has really wanted him,” Roarty said, noting that Adewusi also held an offer from Fordham and was being recruited by several other schools including Monmouth and Albany.
“They like him as an athlete. The coaches and him get along real well. He just likes what they have to offer.”
Adewusi will join former St. Joseph star Jethro Pepe, another Colonia native on the Blue Hens roster. Pepe is a freshman offensive lineman at Delaware, which finished 6-6 this season.
