Power 4 Starter

Reminds Us Of

Andrew Billings Cincinnati Bengals

Was a productive high school player at a good program. Committed to Minnesota during the recruiting process, then re-opened his recruitment and wound up at Kent State.

Built like a true nose at a wide, stout 315 pounds. Has natural strength and a leverage advantage which he uses against the run. Is not just a plugger though, as he has quickness off the ball, and can penetrate and make plays in the backfield. Has been a multi-year starter at Kent State and brings that experience of 35 starts. That includes when the Flashes played SEC and Big Ten competition like Georgia, Texas A&M and Iowa.

In some of those spotlight games against the Bulldogs or Washington, he showed he could make plays that were run to the outside and not just right at him. He has the mobility to close the gap on quarterbacks and ball carries.

He will be able to transfer and give a Power Four team immediate rotational depth, start if they need him to and he should have a chance to hear his name called in the NFL Draft.
