Villanova Footbal Season Countdown: 6 is For Ronnie Akins
If I was asked to identify a breakout candidate on the Villanova defense in 2011, I would pick Ronnie Akins because he has all of the requisite tools to be a stud at safety.
After establishing himself as a special teams stud in 2009 when he was a true freshman, Ronnie Akins played a more established role on defense in 2010, playing in all 14 games and finishing the season with 54 tackles, four tackles for loss, and two interceptions. As the lone returning safety with starting experience on the Villanova roster, expect Akins to take a leadership role on the defensive unit.
