Pros: Good size and quickness, great strength. Used to be a wrestler, that has been credited by many top defenders, especially DT's, as having helped their game.

Six tackles, including a TFL, and a hurry vs. Penn State ... Four tackles vs. Michigan ... Five tackles, including a TFL, at Illinois ... Led all NU defensive linemen with 70 hits ... Second on team with 7 TFLs ... 176 career tackles.

2002: CoSIDA Academic All-District second-team and Academic All-Big Ten selection ... A leg injury hindered his progress during preseason ...

Looks like a nice prospect. Id like to draft one of those two big boys from Missouri- Mosley and Ellison.
