Four-year starter that has been the team's top tackler since he was a true freshman. Finished his senior season with 117/10/1 after 51/10/4 the prior year. Recorded 94 tackles with 11 tackles for loss as a sophomore.
Undersized but fierce linebacker always looking to get involved in the action. Quick and fluid changing direction, moves well laterally and pursues the ballcarrier with speed from the backside. Plays with leverage, takes good angles to the action and squares into his tackles, wrapping up. Reads and anticipates the play, quick filling the gaps in run defense and displays a burst of closing speed. Slow shedding blocks, over-pursues the action at times and does not make many plays in pass defense. Would consider him at strong safety but the lack of ball skills is worrisome. Could be an eighth defensive back that must excel on special teams. Free Agent.
