Prowling The Roster: #1 RB Austin Medley

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

#1 RB Austin Medley

Junior, 5'11" 205 lbs.

Franklinville, NJ

2012 Stats: Limited to 9 games because of injury, Medley logged 74 carries for 402 yards (5.4 avg) and 1 TD. He also had 4 catches for 40 yards.

Depth Chart Position: Medley is the primary backup, as well as "change of speed" back to starter Kevin Monangai. Medley is a homerun threat and is one of the fastest players on the roster according to the coaching staff.

How He Came To Villanova: Medley was a star at Delsea High School (the same school as current verbal commitment Rob Rolle). He was 1st Team All-Conference, 1st Team All-South Jersey and was named the Philadelphia Inquirer South Jersey Player of the Year. He also ran both indoor and outdoor track.

Expected Output In 2013: If Medley can stay healthy throughout the entire season, he should see his carries, yardage and touchdowns go up. With only one touchdown last year, it would be a big bonus to see Medley break a few long ones this season since Monangai is the preferred goal-line back.
