Notes:
A junior college transfer who played two seasons for the Golden Gophers...Posted 66 tackles in 13 games as a junior, including five starts...Improved as a senior with 85 total tackles, including eight TFLs...Broke up four passes as a senior as well...An intense player who challenges both himself and teammates...A weight room warrior who makes up for a lack of ideal ILB size with great strength...Is a capable blitzer thanks to above average speed...A sure tackle who understands the importance of wrapping his arms...Valuable in coverage with foot speed to stay with even the most athletic tight end...Never shies away from contact, willing to put his helmet on a fullback to blow up a play...Can be a bit anxious at times and overrun a play.
