Prowling The Roster: #32 Javon White

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

#32 RB Javon White

Junior, 6'0" 185 lbs.

Telford, PA

2012 Stats: White appeared in 11 games, rushing for 63 yards on 16 carries (3.9 ypc). He was also one of the primary kick returners, taking 14 kicks and returning them for 246 yards (17.6 avg) with a long of 37.

Depth Chart Position: White is currently 4th on the depth chart, but is the primary backup in terms of speed to Austin Medley. He's also returning as the starter on the kick return team.

How He Came To Villanova: White was 1st-Team All-League at Souderton High School, where he was clocked in the 40-yard dash in under 4.4 seconds. He's one of the fastest players on the roster.

Expected Output In 2013: Medley has had his share of injury problems, and while White will probably be used on offense in a limited role again, he is a threat to take it all the way every time he touches the ball. It would be great to see him house a kick return, and maybe be utilized in the passing game a bit more in 2013 to take advantage of the speed factor.
