Tight end’s are at a premium in PA. You don’t have to look much farther than today’s commitments. Western Wayne’s Thomas Chernasky is the second premium tight end in PA to commit to a D1 school today. Chernasky committed to the University of Delaware today. With offers from Northern Colorado, Illinois St, New Hampshire, Lehigh, UVA-Wise, Fordham, Air Force, Brown, UPenn, Colgate, Layafette Akron, Rhode Island, it was Delaware that came in late and stole the show for Chernasky. “I was blown away with the campus and the facilities” said the 6-5, 240 pound now D1 athlete. “They have everything you need and it’s all close by. Restaurants, the classrooms, pretty much everything you need is right there. Joe Flacco did a great job of giving back to the program as well.”
Delaware came to the party late, offering the talented incoming senior after his first visit just 12 days ago. “I got a really good vibe the second I stepped on campus. Every coach I met made me feel very comfortable and wanted. Coach Legg first got in touch with me. I also had a lot of dialogue with Coach Pollin. I couldn’t really pick a number 1. All great guys!
For Thomas, the recruiting process was “awesome. Whether it was going to these camps and performing in front of everyone, or just visiting all the different campuses. Really a great time!” He chose Delaware because “of it’s diversity. I love to put my hand down and block but also bring enough athleticism to go down field and make a play.” Thomas was recruited at tight end, but there was also mention of a possibility at linebacker.
What’s he excited about with the Blue Hen Program? “I would say the possibility to to play at the highest level . They are one of the best FCS teams in the country and to be competing against and with that competition everyday, truly is a blessing. Honestly just being the best version of myself. They give me all the right tools to do so. I just need to go in there and grind and get better every day.
His parents did play a part in the process, but for the most part the let him decide. They were not really a huge role. Naturally they have made this possible for me from the beginning with constant love and support, but they wanted this decision to be completely my own. They would have respected me no matter where I decided to go.” As for what they think of his choice, “They thinks its far enough for me to be “away” but close enough where they can come to games and visit each other. I would say my whole family influenced my career. Naturally the men were a little bit more involved in the process. My dad, grandfather, cousins, uncles, were all very supportive!
I just want to thank everyone that helped make this possible. My whole life my community has been nothing but supportive to me and I couldn’t thank them enough!
