"He led our team in tackles last year, especially in kickoff coverage, and he had another great hit during the game," Margraff said. "He's just improved. You hope that if you're a strong program, there are some guys that are going to take a year or two before they're ready to compete at the highest level, and he's really invested his time over the last two years and he's playing very, very well right now. I'm excited for him. He's worked hard, he's a very good athlete, he's a bright guy, and he's had a great camp and a very good first game. I'm only expecting more out of him."
