Prowling The Roster: #45 Austin Calitro

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

#45 LB Austin Calitro

(RS) Freshman, 6'2" 240 lbs.

Danbury, CT

2012 Stats: Calitro redshirted during his freshman season in 2012.

Depth Chart Position: Calitro exited spring practice slotted behind Dillon Lucas at OLB, and should see a good amount of playing time in 2013. He has the ability to play both inside and outside.

How He Came To Villanova: Calitro was a highly rated recruit (3 stars) out of Danbury where he garnered All-League, All-County and All-State honors. He chose Villanova over an offer from Temple at the time of his commitment.

Expected Output In 2013: Dillon Lucas has had his share of injury concerns so far in his career and so Calitro could be pressed into action if Lucas goes down. Calitro was had a lot of fanfare coming into Villanova and a strong spring so he'll be on the field a fair amount even with Lucas starting ahead of him.
