#48 LB Joe Barrett
Freshman, 6'2" 225 lbs.
West Chester, PA
2012 Stats: Barrett is a true freshman in 2013.
Depth Chart Position: Barrett is a redshirt candidate with Villanova's impressive depth at linebacker entering 2013.
How He Came To Villanova: Barrett starred at Malvern Prep, helping the team to a 6-5 record during his senior season. His high school teammate Jordan Andrews is heading to Delaware to play defensive end, adding a personal rivalry to Villanova-Delaware.
Expected Output In 2013: It wouldn't be a surprise to see Barrett spend the year on the sidelines and in the weight room while participating in scout team duties. While there are also a few freshman surprises (ahem, Dillon Lucas), Villanova's depth at LB is as good as it has been in years.
