Prowling The Roster: #23 DB Lorenzo Fertitta

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

#23 DB Lorenzo Fertitta

Freshman, 5'9" 165 lbs.

Las Vegas, NV

2012 Stats: Fertitta was one of the playmakers in the defensive backfield for national powerhouse Bishop Gorman.

Depth Chart Position: Not on the two-deep currently, and likely would only see playing time due to injury.

How He Came To Villanova: Lorenzo is the son of UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta Sr., and came to Villanova over offers from San Diego and Cornell. Fertitta cited the campus and the east coast location as major factors in his decision.

Expected Output In 2013: Fertitta had a reputation as a playmaker at Gorman, even tying a state record with 4 interceptions in a single game last November. However, he's a bit undersized for the college game and will likely spend his freshman season on the scout team and focusing on adding bulk in the weight room. At the risk of being too cliche, his stature and playing style remind me of the Honey Badger, Tyrann Mathieu.
