Prowling The Roster: #4 LB Emeka Ndichie

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

#4 LB Emeka Ndichie

Junior, 6'0" 215 lbs.

Bloomfield, NJ

2012 Stats: Ndichie appeared in 11 games, recording 9.5 tackles (5 solo, 9 assists) and had 1 sack on the season.

Depth Chart Position: Ndichie is projected to play in a backup role at linebacker, but should be a big contributor on special teams. His speed should be an asset in blitz packages.

How He Came To Villanova: Ndichie was 1st Team All-League and All-County at Bloomfield High School, as well as earning the Scholar-Athlete award. He also lettered in wrestling, basketball and track & field (shotput and discus).

Expected Output In 2013: Linebacker is a loaded position for Villanova, with Joey Harmon and Pat Haggerty the primary contenders at one OLB spot, and Dillon Lucas and Austin Calitro at the other. Ndichie is a fantastic athlete and will likely see the field on passing downs, and he will be a mainstay on special teams as well. If he can get multiple sacks this year, I'm sure everyone will be happy with his performance.
