CONFERENCE: Big 12

CLASS: Senior

JERSEY: No. 29

RECRUITMENT RATING: 3-star

HT: 6’2

WT: 235 lbs

D.O.B.: N/A


PROS: Traditional stand-up linebacker. He is an enforcer on the field. Penetrates gaps with great timing and power. Consistent flow sideline to sideline in run support. Able to scrape and fill gaps. Solid tackling base and technique. Does a nice job at gathering as a solo tackler in space. Natural leader on the field. Very solid, muscular frame.

Cons: Only an average athlete at best. Seems stuck in the mud at times, and is pretty slow in comparison to other 235-pound linebackers. Struggles in pass coverage who looks uncomfortable in zone coverage and reading crossers. Stiff hip flipper. May lack the versatility to play outside linebacker at the next level.
