Russell Wooten, who spent the past two years as a walk-on before graduating in May, has been added to Villanova's 2010-11 roster.
He returned to Southern California after graduation. "I thought my basketball career was over," Wooten said. "I was just trying to get a regular job."
Wooten, of Chula Vista, Cal., is enrolled at graduate school at Villanova.
Russell noted: "I was proud to be a part of the `Nation', and when the chance came to be a part of this again, I couldn't wait to get back."
