The Bench Mob preview:

It’s more of a one-man bench mob this season. The spotlight is on Kevin Voigt, the lone walk-on.

Voigt joined the team last season as a junior, after previously spending time on the practice squad.

With COVID-19 limiting preparation time during the offseason and preseason, that meant no Bench Mob appearances, as rotational players and younger ones got valuable game time. Then, Trey Patterson enrolled early at Villanova, crowding the depth chart even more. Now, with players taking bonus years, that limited the number of spots for more walk-ons.

Get ready for the Villanova Basketball season with new fan gear.

As college basketball slowly returns to normalcy, with a full preseason and offseason, as well as the high-ceiling for the Villanova Wildcats, it’s possible that we see the one-man bench mob if things go well.

Even if Voigt doesn’t get many minutes, he’ll certainly have plenty of highlights to be excited for.

Best Case Scenario: It’s always a great sign for the Wildcats when walk-ons go in. If Villanova can live up to its preseason hype, there’s a chance Voigt can make frequent appearances. Even if he doesn’t go in, he’ll remain a fan favorite.

Worst Case Scenario: The games are close or the ‘Cats are trailing, which means there aren’t really any opportunities for Voigt to go in. Despite that, he continues to be a hype man, generate energy and help out in practice.
