Prowling The Roster: #91 DL Thomas Plonski

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

#91 DL Thomas Plonski

Freshman, 6'5" 230 lbs.

Brooklyn, NY

2012 Stats: Plonski played both defensive end and tight end for Brooklyn Tech High School.

Depth Chart Position: Plonski is a depth player right now in the Villanova defensive line rotation.

How He Came To Villanova: He was a New York Daily News All-Area player, two-time NYCFCA All-Boro and All-City selection, and he was the Brooklyn 2011 Defensive Lineman of the Year. Plonski committed to Villanova in early August 2012, making him the third commitment in the class.

Expected Output In 2013: Plonski is a little undersized for Villanova's base 3-3-5 scheme which features 3 down linemen. He'll likely spend the year focusing his effort in the weight room to pack on more bulk, but his 19 sacks in 31 games in high school suggest he could be an asset as a pass-rushing defensive end.
