With the football season over for the Villanova Wildcats, recruiting will now kick in to high gear. The Wildcats have offered wide receiver Damon Hazelton, per his Twitter.
Extremely Blessed to receive an offer from Villanova! #GoWildcats ⚪️ pic.twitter.com/afH6WoSl2f— Damon Hazelton Jr. (@dahazeltonjr) December 10, 2015
Hazelton is a 6'4" 195 pound prospect from Reistertown (MD) who plays for Franklin High School. He also reports offers from Florida Atlantic, Ball State and Delaware.
With leading receiver Kevin Gulyas and Aaron Wells having expired their eligibility, wide receiver is a big position of need going forward and Hazelton offers something that the Wildcats currently don't possess - an explosive athlete with size. His big frame allows him to box out defenders and win jump balls, and his speed should allow him to stretch the field and open up the Wildcats' passing attack underneath with all of their weapons.
Check out Hazelton's highlights below - names than immediately come to mind are Brandyn Harvey and Norman White - both who had very successful careers on the Main Line. Here's hoping Hazelton is next in line.
