BIOGRAPHY: Full-time starter the past two seasons after playing six games with the first team as a sophomore. Led the team in tackles
as a senior posting 97/12.5/2. Junior totals included 78 tackles.
POSITIVES: The team captain on defense, Hursky is a leader by example, and he has improved his game the past three seasons. He has a
special teams mentality, and could find a home as a backup inside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment at the next level.
NEGATIVES: Average skill in pass coverage and does not get much depth on drops. Will struggle staying step for step with fast tight ends.
ANALYSIS: Hard-working inside linebacker who plays bigger and faster than his listed measurables. Breaks down well, remains disciplined
with assignments, and displays a good head for the ball. Aggressive, seeks out physical contact, yet also instinctive and
correctly diagnoses plays. Collapses from the outside to defend the run, quickly fills gaps up the field in run defense and
charges sideline to sideline making plays. Forceful up the field and sells out on the blitz.
