BIO: Hobbled with injury throughout much of his senior season and posted just 15 tackles. Career-best numbers of 60/2/13 came as a freshman when he started every game at strong safety.
POSITIVES: Talented defensive back whose play regressed the past two seasons. Displays skill in zone and is effective when the action is in front of him. Quickly breaks to the ball, has a burst of closing speed and displays a good degree of explosion.
NEGATIVES: Slow reacting and lacks top ball skills. Does not display a sense of timing.
ANALYSIS: Sized well, Bassey has shown the skills necessary to at least get a look in camp.
