Fast, quick, hard hitter, leader. All describe Villanova’s Don Cherry, one of the nation’s top linebackers and NFL prospects at the position.

“A potential starter you can draft on day three out of a program that isn’t short on NFL alums,” according to ESPN’s Mel Kiper.

But it’s not all football for Cherry.

“If it doesn’t work out in the NFL,” said Wildcats coach Andy Talley, “he’s probably gonna be a self-made millionaire. I mean he is one hard worker. I put my money on Donny Cherry.”
