Four-year starter that looked like a blue chip prospect early in his career. Played in only four games as a senior after herniating a disc in his neck and a fusion procedure was needed to repair the damage. Totaled 33/3.5/1/0/1 last season after junior numbers of 107/6/4/1/3. All-Conference selection as a sophomore when he registered 52 tackles.
Explosive athlete whose football skills have seemingly taken a turn for the worst. Fast moving in any direction of the field displaying both range and speed pursuing the ballcarrier. Scrapes well laterally, stays on his feet and also gets depth on his pass drops. Explosive moving up the field, forces the action and strong at the point of attack. Very much a disruptive force early in his career though his mental skills have not been at the same level as his physical ability. Slow and hesitant reading or anticipating the action, not efficient and wastes a lot of movement getting to the action. Late picking up his pass cover assignments and does not always take the best angles to the ball carrier. Never redshirted and could have applied for a medical hardship based on the events of last year but is on pace to graduate and decided to explore his options at the next level. The inconsistencies of his play the past two seasons plus the recent neck injury make him a major risk in every aspect at this point in time. Free Agent.
