Prowling The Roster: #56 Manny Aleshinloye

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

#56 LB Manny Aleshinloye

Freshman, 6'1" 205 lbs.

Hershey, PA

2012 Stats: It is Aleshinoye's first year in the Wildcats program.

Depth Chart Position: Not currently projected on the post-spring two-deep, and could be a likely redshirt candidate.

How He Came To Villanova: Aleshinloye joined the 'Nova football program as a preferred walk-on. As you can see from his Hudl highlights, he starred at defensive end for Milton Hershey School where he used his exceptional speed to great effect chasing down quarterbacks.

Expected Output In 2013:Because he's making the transition from the line to the linebacking corps, Aleshinloye is a likely redshirt candidate, but could find his way onto special teams duty to utilize his outstanding athleticism.
