WATCH: Illini perfectly played pursuit of Florida DE Owen Carney

In the video above, Illini Inquirer publisher Jeremy Werner discusses how Illinois landed Owen Carney and the impact the Florida defensive end will have at Illinois.


Carney, 6-foot-3.5, 225 pounds, is a gifted pass rusher that provides nice closing speed and athleticism when busting through the offensive line. Carney is a young man that certainly makes his presence known when making initial contact, and really does a nice job of having his motor switch turned on at all times as well. Exploding off the ball and disengaging off blocks are areas of improvement moving forward.
