He use to play the Leo position. He'll now man the Viper spot. Some things have changed and things haven't.
Although it's called a different name, he'll play the same position at Louisiana Tech as he did at Illinois, a linebacker-defensive end hybrid.
He recorded 3.5 sacks and 12 stops for loss in 2013 and was expected to be a senior leader for the Illini this upcoming fall. Instead, he elected to play closer to home. He's on track to graduate from Illinois this May, granting him immediate eligibility this season for the Bulldogs.
