2014 Outlook: Linebacker who begins his redshirt junior year with a lot of momentum from 2013. Earned big-game experience and was a vital cog toward FSU’s masterful defense last season at the Mike position. Looked at as one of FSU’s many key returning pieces this season, showing a tremendous knack for being able to cover the field sideline to sideline. Had a tremendous spring and logged time at the Will spot. Has quickly developed into a leader on the Seminoles’ defense.
