It's not too often that LSU goes head to head with Oregon over a recruit. It becomes especially interesting when the recruit in question is from North Carolina. A Class of 2011 prospect is listing those schools from seemingly different worlds at the top of his list.[details]
The Good: Possesses a well-built frame with good lower body mass. An impressive downhill tackler with good instincts and gap recognition inside. Is quick to recognize run/pass and has a fluid drop and compact back-pedal. Is very fluid in space and can flip his hips and turn to run with tight ends down the field. A gifted pass defender who is tough to beat down the seam. The Bad: Not real tall for the position and struggles with his overall length and trying to keep blockers off his body. Isn't a real powerful tackler and is more of a drag-down guy at the line of scrimmage.
