Each year there are a number of former student-athletes competing in several sports at the professional level. Villanovans who have played professionally have been successful in Major League Baseball, the NBA, NFL, Major League Lacrosse, and in many other pro leagues in the United States and around the globe.
When student-athletes from the Wildcats move on to the professional level, they continue to have a number of athletic and academic resources available to them on campus. During the summer it is a common sight in the Davis Center to see NBA players using the Villanova facilities for their offseason workouts. In turn, the current student-athletes have access to great mentors who have come through the program on their way to becoming professional athletes.
