A couple of players with some rather interesting and strong NFL ties made moves on Monday as to where their respective college destinations will be.Maika Polamalu
, 6-foot, 205-pound Pottsgrove tailback/linebacker and the cousin of Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu, has opted to go to Navy, choosing to be a Midshipmen over scholarship offers from Temple and Villanova.Spencer Reid
, a 5-11, 205-pound tailback at Harriton High School and the youngest of Philadelphia Eagles' head coach Andy Reid's three sons, has chosen to go to Temple, selecting the Owls over Delaware and Northern Arizona University.
For Polamalu, a four-year starter who rushed for 1,457 yards and 20 touchdowns last season, Navy's campus was impressive and he also came away impressed after talking to a number of the Navy players.
Polamalu is projected to be a running back or defensive back at Navy.
As for Reid, who rushed for 960 yards and 15 touchdowns last season, he was one of a few standouts on a team that finished 3-8 overall and 2-8 in the Central League. Reid is projected as a running back for new Owls' coach Steve Addazio.
