BIO: Moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore and has been awarded All-Conference and All-Academic honors ever since. Led the team in tackles as a senior posting 86/7.5/3 after 58/3/1 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Hard-working, run-defending linebacker with marginal size/speed numbers. Takes good angles to the action, chases to get involved and works hard. Gets depth on drops and displays skill in zone.
NEGATIVES: Better in a straight line and marginal ability in pursuit. Slow adjusting off blocks and engulfed at the point.
ANALYSIS: A competitive defender, Schimmelmann offers marginal upside for the next level and would be best backing up in a 34 defense.
