Notes: From Cleveland, OH. Saw action in 9 games as a freshman in 2015, totaled 12 tackles and 1 TFL. Played in all 12 games in 2016, finished with 59 tackles, 4.5 TFL, 2 FF, 1 sacks and 1 PBU. Started all 12 games in 2017, with career highs with 63 tackles, 8 TFL, 3.5 sacks and 1 PBU.

Positives: Explosive off the ball and can out-quick opponents. Gets upfield. Penetrates and disrupts. Controls and plays off blocks at the point of attack. Seldom stays blocked. Locates the ball. Plays with toughness and tenacity. Strong tackler. Stays on his feet and will pursue sideline to sideline. Hustles to chase plays down. Good closing speed. Consistent motor.

Negatives: Lacks dominant size or mass. Gets too upright and doesn’t change directions well at times.

Summary: Very good fit as a one-gap defensive tackle.
