Alumni Profile: Charlie Villanueva

ESPN Ranking: 93

Position: Power/Small Forward

Team: Milwaukee Bucks

Overview: Charlie’s role has been to be a scorer with the second unit. He has the skills to be an elite player, but hasn’t taken that next step to securing a starting position. He plays hard and makes all the hustle plays. He’s a fluid offensive player, once scoring 48 points in a game, and has been committed to the boards. Now in his fourth season, he is beginning to find the consistency in his game that has been previously lacking. He is as passionate about his charity as he is about his game on the court. He is the spokesman for National Alopecia Areata Foundation, started The Charlie Villanueva Foundation to combat bullying, and created the footwear donation program named Tenis Para Ninos. Charlie is primed to take his game to the next level and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he gets a hefty new contract after this season.
