Notes:

The Cincinnati prep stayed home to play for the Bearcats. Appeared in 12 games mostly as a special-teams player in 2008 and made 12 tackles, zero tackles for loss and zero sacks with one pass breakup and one forced fumble. In ’09, took over one of the starting ILB spots in Week Two and logged 100-5 1/2-1 1/2 with three pass breakups and three interceptions in 13 games (12 starts). Led the team in tackles from his MLB spot in ’10, recording 111-9 1/2-3 with five pass breakups, one interception and two forced fumbles in 12 starts. Awarded All-American Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year honors from the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) in April ’11. Starting MLB in '11 who led the team in tackles again after posting 114-13-4 1/2 with six pass breakups, three interceptions and three forced fumbles in 13 starts. Team captain.

Summary:

High-motor, intense, scrape-and-flow "Mike" 'backer with very short arms and tight hips. Generally fits properly in the run game, though he makes most of his plays ranging outside, as he uses his hands to play over blocks and has good feet and speed to run to the ball. Also gets depth in his drops and can intercept. Lacks bulk and is too easily washed by linemen. Experienced, productive, highly competitive ’backer with the makeup of a core special-teams player.
