Prowling The Roster: #24 DB Wes Smith

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

#24 DB Wes Smith

Freshman, 5'11" 175 lbs.

Miramar, FL

2012 Stats: Wes Smith was plying his trade for perennial talent-producer University School in Florida.

Depth Chart Position: Wes Smith likely could have competed for playing time in his freshman season, but a season-ending knee injury required surgery during the summer. He'll redshirt and come back next season with 4 years of eligibility remaining.

How He Came To Villanova: Wes Smith committed to Villanova in late-December of 2012, and was recruited as a safety. He held several FCS offers, and a couple of FBS offers from Toledo and Utah State. He hails from the same school as current 'Nova DL Pat Williams.

Expected Output In 2013: Despite the bad luck with the injury, Smith has remained positive about his rehab and outlook for next year. The year off will give him a good chance to learn Villanova's defensive system under less pressure, and he should come back next spring ready to compete for playing time in the defensive backfield.
