Prowling The Roster: #80 WR Lincoln Collins

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

#80 WR Lincoln Collins

Freshman, 6'2" 180 lbs.

Nahant, MA

2012 Stats: 25 catches for 400 yards and 4 TD in a season where he was limited due to the injury of his team's starting QB.

Depth Chart Position: Currently 3rd string, but has already been praised by the coaching staff for his ability.

How He Came To Villanova: Collins was a star at Boston College High School where he helped lead the team to the 2011 State Championship. He was named to the Catholic Conference All-Star team and logged 80 catches for 1200 yards and 9 touchdowns during his career.

Expected Output In 2013: With Clay Horne looking like the answer opposite Joe Price, and both Mike Burke and Kevin Gulyas pushing PT on the 2nd string, it's gotten pretty crowded in front of Collins. Still, he is the most heralded recruit out of the bunch, which means his natural talent could give him a path to playing time early in his career.
