Biography: Two-year starter who finished with 41 tackles/6.5 tackles for loss/2 sacks as a senior after posting 42/8/3 the prior year.
Positives: Explosive one-gap tackle with limited upside for the next level. Displays solid first-step quickness, quickly changes direction and shows the ability to collapse down the line of scrimmage to make plays. Bends his knees, gets leverage on opponents and works his hands throughout the action. Resilient, stays with the action and gives effort. Takes advantage of the opportunities afforded him.
Negatives: Marginal closing burst of speed and ineffective in pursuit. Lacks leg drive and does not get much push up the field.
Analysis: Regis is a penetrating one-gap tackle who gets the most from his ability. He offers marginal size and athleticism but could be effective as a rotational defender on a four-man line.
