Prowling The Roster: #65 Nico D'Angelo

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

#65 OL Nico D'Angelo

(RS) Freshman, 6'3" 290 lbs.

Margate, NJ

2012 Stats: D'Angelo took a redshirt in 2012 and will have 4 years of eligibility remaining with the program.

Depth Chart Position: Not currently on the two-deep, and should continue to be a part of scout team duties during 2013.

How He Came To Villanova: While D'Angelo held an FBS offer from Tulane, he chose Villanova for the academics citing his desire to "get a degree that meant something." D'Angelo played just one full season of high school football and is thus still learning the nuances of the game, but has been touted for his tremendous athleticism, even running a sub 4.9 40-yard dash, which is tremendous for a 300-pounder.

Expected Output In 2013: It's likely D'Angelo continues to fine tune his football skills in 2013 with Villanova possessing such a strong two-deep at offensive line entering the fall. Because of his upside though, D'Angelo has a chance to be a real weapon in Villanova's high-speed attack over the next few seasons.
