BIO: Two-year starter who posted 76/5.5/1 as a senior after 74/6/2 the prior year.
POSITIVES: Explosive linebacker with solid size/speed numbers. Forceful collapsing from the outside in run defense, makes plays in pursuit and wraps up tackling. Flashes on the scene and plays with a good degree of suddenness. Fluid pedaling in reverse and has good hands in coverage.
NEGATIVES: Hesitant, not overly instinctive and removes himself from the action at times. Takes a lot of missteps and is not efficient.
ANALYSIS: Playing stronger than his listed size, Kershaw is a solid athlete with upside for the next level. Needs to polish his game yet offers potential on the weak side.
