Prowling The Roster: #8 DB Trey Johnson

New, comments

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

#8 DB Trey Johnson

Freshman, 5'11" 160 lbs.

Lutz, FL

2012 Stats: Johnson is a true freshman, and played his high school football at Steinbrenner High School.

Depth Chart Position: Johnson will make a push for playing time in the defensive backfield, although he's not expected to be in competition for a starting role. He will play CB at Villanova.

How He Came To Villanova: He was a 3-sport star at Steinbrenner, also lettering in basketball and track & field where he competed in the 100 & 200 meters. He possessed a 4.2 GPA in high school and was a member of the National Honor Society.

Expected Output In 2013: While there is a lot of open competition in the defensive backfield, there are more senior players on the roster expected to contribute. Johnson is an extremely gifted athlete who had a host of FBS offers though, so the talent is there for him to possibly make an early contribution at the cornerback position.
