Mobile linebacker a possibility for Bama

The slightly taller of twin linebacking brothers, Dusty Lindsey should be a top prospect next season.

The Mobile native was named Region 6A Linebacker of the Year as a junior, after Dusty Lindsey (6-4, 216, 4.65) led the entire Port City with 152 tackles.

According to Davidson High School Head Coach Glenn Vickery, Lindsey "never takes a play off. Both brothers go full speed on every play, whether it is in a game or in practice," Vickery said.

Flanked by his brother Jordin, Dusty played inside linebacker last season. In addition to his city-leading tackle total, Dusty Lindsey had 19 sacks, 35 quarterback hurries, three interceptions and six fumble recoveries.

Lindsey has a frame that could allow him to grow into a rush defensive end in college, or he may settle in at either linebacker slot. With one high school season to go, he has developed a reputation among rival quarterbacks, because he was constantly dragging them to the ground or making them rush their passes.

"Dusty takes the mentality on the field of ‘see the ball, go get the ball,'" his high school coach said. "Both brothers are totally aggressive players."

Lindsey is also a stellar baseball player, who led the Mobile area with nine Home Runs last year. He batted .383 in the process.

Dusty Lindsey bench presses 320 pounds, squats 415, power cleans 310 and dead lifts 505. He carries a 2.6 GPA and has scored 17 on the ACT. Qualifying is not expected to be a concern.

Lindsey made the All State team as a junior and plans to camp at Alabama, Auburn, LSU, and Mississippi State this summer. He lists early schools of interest as Alabama, Auburn, LSU, and Mississippi State.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Lindsey's parents are both Alabama fans. The Tide would be farther along in its recruitment, except that the previous staff paid little attention to the twins. Both Lindseys attended Alabama's recent Junior Day.
