BIO: Three-year starter who posted 40/8/4 as a senior.
POSITIVES: Athletic line prospect who consistently shows flashes of brilliance. Solid edge rusher with a quick change of direction and ability to alter his angle of attack. Pursues well laterally, displays excellent range, and makes plays in any direction of the field. Fast up the field, rarely off his feet and focused on by opponents.
NEGATIVES: Slow diagnosing the play or locating the ball. Lacks an explosive first step off the snap and overall suddenness to his game. Handled at the point once engaged in a block.
ANALYSIS: A defender who makes big plays in the opponents backfield while also displaying the versatility to be used off the line of scrimmage, Gause offers both athleticism and versatility for the next level. That said, he seemingly underachieved as a senior and did not having the season scouts expected. Possessing good upside for the next level, Gause must turn up his game several notches to have any chance of making an impact.
