Very highly recruited as RB and LB coming out of high school in Tallahassee. Some services had him as nation's #1 HS recruit. Both parents were varsity athletes at FSU.
Left FSU after his JR year. Good physical guy - speed and quickness. As expected, tested well at the Combine - 4.46 40-yd, 25 bench reps, 41" vertical (2nd among LBs), 10'5" broad jump. Typical undersized (has gained weight leading up to Indy), fast FSU LB. Plays very aggressively, likes contact. Missed offseason practice time with concussion and ankle injuries. Coaches had to reign him in for practices for throwing his body around. Can get good depth in pass coverage and has decent hands for a LB. Made a few diving INTs, including one on Labor Day during FSU's win against Miami. Has decent instincts.
I think his numbers were down his JR year but FSU LB coach Kevin Steele said that he graded out very well in each game and that declining numbers a function of teams gameplanning around him.
Take all this FWIW. I'm not a coach or anything.
