Prowling The Roster: #39 DB Matt Rushton

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

#39 DB Matt Rushton

Freshman, 5'11" 185 lbs.

Media, PA

2012 Stats: Rushton played defensive back for Episcopal Academy.

Depth Chart Position: Rushton will likely be a member of the scout team in 2013.

How He Came To Villanova: Matt Rushton committed to Villanova as a preferred walk-on about a week before National Signing Day. His father Scott Rushton played football for Andy Talley as a safety in 1989. Rushton was 1st Team All-Inter AC and 1st Team All-County during his senior season.

Expected Output In 2013: Like most preferred walk-ons, Rushton is a probable redshirt candidate and will spend the season learning the Villanova defense and participating on the scout team. Rushton has received plaudits as a strong tackler with the ability to play both safety and cornerback, so it will be interesting to see where he ends up.
