Injury History.

History. Four-star recruit from Lafayette, LA. Started his High School career at Northside High School, before academic issues forced a transfer to Notre Dame High School, in Crowley, LA. Participated in the Under Armour All-America Game and Nike’s The Opening. Was forced to take an academic redshirt his freshmen year at LSU. Was suspended by the team for disciplinary issues.

Strengths: Massive body, with long arms. Brute strength. Space eater, who can handle double teams with ease. Really tough for linemen to move him out of gaps. Smaller linemen can be walked back to the QB. Big and powerful hands, which he uses well. Good pad level.

Weaknesses: Only 14 career starts. Very limited athletic profile, due to size. Limited tackle radius. Isn’t going to make plays down the LOS. Not a three-down rusher. Conditioning and weight issues. Has been suspended by the team, and has faced academic issues dating back to HS.

Overview: Two-gap, two-down nose tackle, that has a career ahead of him, solely due to his size/strength. He needs to get in better shape and work on his rush set. He’s immediately going to help your run game, but he’s not a three-down player right away, if ever.

Evaluation based on. Alabama 19′, Oklahoma 19′
