Prowling The Roster: #72 George Benakis

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

#72 OL George Benakis

Sophomore, 6'4" 355 lbs.

Toronto, Ont.

2012 Stats: Benakis did not see action for the Wildcats last season.

Depth Chart Position: Benakis is not currently projected in the two-deep on the offensive line, and will likely serve mainly as a scout team player in 2013.

How He Came To Villanova: Though a native Canadian, Benakis came to Villanova via Bridgeton Academy in Maine where he was the recipient of the John Ellis Trophy. He was a preferred walk-on in the class of 2012.

Expected Output In 2013: With Villanova possessing such great talent at OL, it would be a surprise to see Benakis on the field, but with his size he'll provide good bulk on the scout team and eventually could work his way into the lineup in the coming years with Villanova graduating a lot of talent following the 2013 season.
