Pollock left Orlando at 4:30 a.m. to be on campus before kickoff, and used the time to verbally commit to coach Kyle Flood in his office.
"It's a family atmosphere that can't be beat," Pollock said on his decision. "I love everything that coach Flood represents. He's a teacher, and I can't wait to play for him."
Pollock becomes the second 2016 commitment to the Scarlet Knights. He plans to enroll for January of 2016 for spring practice.
"It's exciting," he said. "I can't wait to get here as an early graduate. I'm enrolling early just like Ted Field. We're going to live together, and it's awesome."
