Allentown Central Catholic WR Kevin Gulyas accepts preferred walk-on status with Villanova
Pennsylvania’s most prolific wide receiver has chosen to continue his collegiate football career at the Division-1 FCS level.
Kevin Gulyas, a 6’0, 175-pound wide receiver/kickoff returner for three-time defending District 11 AAA champ Allentown Central Catholic, will play collegiate football for Villanova as a preferred walk-on, according to the Allentown Morning Call. Preferred walk-on status means Gulyas does not have a scholarship or grant-in-aid package at present, but does have the opportunity to earn one over the course of his collegiate career.
Gulyas didn’t draw Division-1 FBS offers during his recruiting process, but did attract interest from programs like Cincinnati, Duke, Kentucky, Missouri, Notre Dame, Penn State, Pitt, South Carolina, Temple and Vanderbilt, among others.
National recruiting service Scout.com ranked Gulyas as the No. 254 wide receiver in the 2012 recruiting class and a two-star prospect.
The Vikings’ featured wide receiver each of the last three seasons, Gulyas finished his career with more than 4,000 receiving yards, far and away the state career record. The Viking senior is believed to be the Keystone State’s first-ever career 4,000-yard receiver.
Gulyas established new state single season records in 2011 for receptions (122), receiving yards (2,031) and receiving touchdowns (27). As a junior, Gulyas posted 1,282 receiving yards and scored 20 touchdowns in helping the Vikings attain their third PIAA AAA championship in school history.
Allentown Central Catholic finished 9-6 in 2011, reaching the PIAA AAA semifinals opposite Archbishop Wood.
