Luckily for the three incoming freshman at Villanova, they will not be forced to play a massive role this season like many freshman do at most major colleges nowadays.
One of those freshmen is Kris Jenkins, who has been likened to a younger version of JayVaughn Pinkston in this look at him from Brian Ewart at VUHoops.com
That comparison actually makes a ton of sense if you look at role that Pinkston has played during his career at Villanova.
Pinkston has been a reliable source of scoring in the paint and on the wing, and he has been able to step into a position where he may be uncomfortable and succeed without complaining about the role.
At 6'6", Jenkins could turn into a hybrid power forward like Pinkston, as he can provide strength and size in the paint as well as versatility to move out to the wing and score efficiently.
If Pinkston does go down at any time during the season, expect Jenkins to take over his role and provide the same skill set, and hopefully the same numbers, that the junior produces.
