Year: 5 yr Senior
2001:-Started four games totaling 28 tackles.
2000 - Played in only seven games after a foot injury slowed his progress, and totaled 17/3/1.5.
The Good: Solid inside plugger with a decent amount of upside potential based on his athletic abilities. Plays with forward lean and leverage, works hard, chasing to get involved in the action. Collapses nicely from the outside to defend the run, gets push up the field and also displays a closing burst of speed. Holds the point against blockers.
The Bad: Undersized and wears down over the course of a game. Must learn to use his hands better and keep opponents off him. A little stiff and cannot sustain his speed.
The Skinny: Developmental prospect that could move into a starting line-up as he matures physically.
