Prowling The Roster: #57 Noble Ajakaiye

We're counting down the days to Villanova's season opener by profiling every player on the roster.

#57 LB Noble Ajakaiye

(RS) Sophomore, 6'0" 230 lbs.

Harrisburg, NC

2012 Stats: Ajakiaye appeared in 11 games for the Wildcats, mostly on special teams. He recorded 4.5 tackles (2 solo, 5 assisted), but also logged 1.5 sacks on the year.

Depth Chart Position: Not currently projected on the post-spring two-deep, but should be seen often on the field for special teams and in pass-rushing situations.

How He Came To Villanova: Ajakaiye played a lot of defensive end in high school but has successfully made the transition to LB at 'Nova. As a senior at Hickory Ridge, he recorded 94 tackles and 13 sacks en route to All-Conference and All-County honors. He was high on Villanova's academics when he signed.

Expected Output In 2013: He's shown a skill for getting to the QB, so I'd expect to se #57 out there during clear passing downs, as well as special teams duty. Like the offensive line, Villanova has really good depth at LB and so it's going to be a fight for PT all season for players like Ajakaiye.
