Cedric Udegbe has become the first player from Montverde Academy's football program to commit to a college football program with his commitment to the University of Delaware.

Delaware plays in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision.

Udegbe, who is from Germany, played offensive tackle and defensive end on Montverde's first-year football team. He is expected to play defensive end at Delaware, Montverde coach Brian Treweek said.

The Blue Hens are searching for a new head coach after relieving K.C. Keeler of his duties on Jan. 7.
