#24 Andrew Dowell
Another of the top young Spartans fans are excited about. Only a sophomore, Dowell should continue to see his reps grow in 2016. Was listed as the spring depth chart as the starter at the STAR backer spot but could see some shifting among the linebackers that places him as a back-up.
True freshman that played in 13 games, primarily on special teams. However, he still posted 22 tackles leading the Spartans with 10 kickoff tackles.
WHY HE MADE THE COUNTDOWN
Dowell has all the tools to become a special player in the coming years. Will it all come together this fall? We'll have to wait and see how the depth chart looks following camp as he looks to grab the starting STAR backer spot.
