#27 FS John Maughan
Senior, 5'10" 205 lbs.
Park Ridge, NJ
2012 Stats: Maughan appeared in 11 games, recording 7.5 tackles (3 solo, 7 assists), and 0.5 TFL.
Depth Chart Position: Maughan is pegged to backup Joe Sarnese at the free safety position in Villanova's 3-3-5 base defense.
How He Came To Villanova: Having originally signed with Holy Cross coming out of NJ powerhouse Bergen Catholic, Maughan was a late enrollee at Villanova. He was a two-way player at Bergen, recording 44 tackles on defense and 20 catches for 218 yards during his senior season.
Expected Output In 2013: With Joe Sarnese entrenched as an every-down player, Maughan will probably do most of his damage on special teams unless Sarnese picks up a knock. With Villanova seeking an experienced player to replace the departed Ronnie Akins, Maughan could be a candidate to step up if penciled-in starter Cam McCurry falters.
