The offseason is here, presenting us with an opportunity to refresh and publish the Villanova’s All-Time Lists. We continue this week by looking at the Wildcats’ career leaders in rebounds. This list has all 45 players with 500+ career rebounds, including last seasons leading rebounder.

With Josh Hart, Kris Jenkins, and Darryl Reynolds graduating, the school is losing 1,647 career rebounds. Josh Hart is the lone member of the class to make the All-Time List finishing 14th with 812 career boards. He’s also just the 14th player in Villanova history to record 800+ rebounds, making him one of the best rebounding guards in school history.

Looking forward to next season, Mikal Bridges leads the team in career rebounds with 293. He would need to see a major improvement in production on the glass next season to secure the 207 rebounds needed to make the list, but it’s not impossible. As a sophomore, Bridges recorded 165 rebounds while starting most of the year.
