Prowling The Roster: #13 WS Shayne Jones

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

#13 WS Shayne Jones

(RS) Freshman, 6'0" 200 lbs.

Hillsborough, NJ

2012 Stats: Jones redshirted in 2012.

Depth Chart Position: Jones looks set to compete for playing time at the weak safety position, where Cameron McCurry is projected to start.

How He Came To Villanova: Shayne Jones committed to Villanova over offers from Central Michigan and Buffalo. He played his high school football at Immaculata High School, playing mostly cornerback where he was strong in run support. He was 1st Team All-Conference and All-County.

Expected Output In 2013: Jones should be able to break onto the field as he'll be playing a position that is breaking in a new starter in Cameron McCurry. If he can take advantage of the opportunities he gets, he could put himself in position to be a defensive regular in his first year on the field.
