I have all of your favorite cliches: Athleticism! Speed! Swarms to the football! Plays from sideline to sideline! Will need to add weight and strength to compete at the next level! Fleck and co. are taking a flyer on an in-state linebacker with good athleticism. That seems to be the coaching staff’s M.O. in recruiting linebackers so far — raw athletes — with Thomas Rush and Mariano Sori-Marin as recent examples. I can’t say they’ve earned the benefit of the doubt yet, considering all of the starting linebackers from the last two seasons were recruited by the previous staff. For now, I suppose we’ll have to trust the process and wait to see the results.
