Player Profile: Bumper Pool
(Video will AutoPlay above)
Bumper Pool is one of the top defensive prospects in Texas and one of the best linebackers nationally in the 2018 class. He's your typical inside 'backer when it comes to flashing his physical nature, but he also shows good lateral range and pursuit ability. He's an attacking defender who's a consistent tackler inside the tackles and in space. The first thing you like to see when popping in tape of a middle linebacker prospect is downhill speed and Pool is a linebacker who will close the gap quickly. He tracks the ball carriers well and takes good pursuit angles that allows him to quickly finish off tackles once he arrives at the point of contact. Continued development in pass coverage and in strength and quickness areas will be key in helping him maintain a lofty national position ranking.
Pool is 100% committed to the Arkansas Razorbacks.
