Prowling The Roster: #75 Josh Bucci

New, comments

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

#75 OL Josh Bucci

Senior, 6'6" 350 lbs.

Beaver, PA

2012 Stats: Bucci started all 12 games for Villanova at right tackle, the second straight year he has accomplished that feat. He's on a streak of 34 straight starts for Villanova dating back to 2010. He was selected 2nd team All-CAA in 2012.

Depth Chart Position: With the return of Dan Shirey, Ross Hall will slide over to LG and Bucci will start at RG for Villanova.

How He Came To Villanova: Bucci was a Big 33 selection in his senior season at Beaver High School as well as a state finalist in the shot put. A strong academic background has led to a civil engineering major at 'Nova.

Expected Output In 2013: Bucci is by far the biggest player on the Villanova offensive line, and together with Vince Kowalski and Dan Shirey, should open up more than a few holes on the right side of the line for the talented rushers to burst through this season. As a preseason All-CAA selection, he's expected to be one of the best linemen in the entire conference.
