Prowling The Roster: #9 WR Aaron Wells

New, comments

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

#9 WR Aaron Wells

Sophomore, 5'8" 185 lbs.

Ellicott City, MD

2012 Stats: Wells played in 11 games, totaling 110 yards on 11 carries and 1 catch for 23 yards.

Depth Chart Position: Wells is competing for playing time in the slot position with Jamal Abdur-Rahman and Poppy Livers.

How He Came To Villanova: He was 1st Team All-County and 2nd Team All-State for River Hill High School. When he committed Villanova was his only offer but he had FBS interest from Stanford, Pittsburgh, Rutgers and Wake Forest.

Expected Output In 2013: With the return of Abdur-Rahman, one of Poppy Livers or Aaron Wells is going to see their touches take a hit. Although, with the number change (#23 to #9), I think the coaching staff sees Wells are more of a WR than the runner he was last season, so those slot receivers could have different roles within the team. His carries may decrease but his receptions should go up.
