GVTarget: Daquante Caviness

One of West Michigan's top defenders is Muskegon Heights LB Daquante Caviness. This tackling machine also performed well at GVSU's summer camp. How does he fit into the Laker defense? See for yourself with these junior highlights.

Daquante Caviness is a big linebacker at 6'1, 255 lbs. He has a nose for the ball and is strong at the point of attack as he is able to take on run plays head on and shed blockers.

At GVSU though, he would project as a defensive end and he is the type of tweener...deemed not quite fast enough for a Big Ten linebacker and a tad too short for a Big Ten defensive end that has become a star at GVSU.

What does he need to do to improve? Technical things, using his hands better for one. Also, conditioning, he is a really good athlete but if he were in better shape, he could really be a terror.

What is his interest level in Grand Valley? Eastern Michigan, Michigan State and Western Michigan among others have shown interest, but GVSU is close to home, gives him a chance to be part of a winning program and like we mentioned above, also gives him the best chance to start and be successful. He could very well grab a few late MAC offers, but the Lakers are in solid shape here with Mr. Caviness.
