Defensive Line

“Yaya (Diaby) has gotten bigger and stronger. He started to come into himself midway through last season. Now he can play a lot faster. He’s going to have a heck of a year.”

“Malik (Clark) is a guy that turned it on and the end of spring ball. Ramon Puryear and Ashton Gillotte are doing tremendous.”


“CJ Avery is a great leader and a captain. He’s a coach on the field. It’s awesome to have him back.”

On Monty Montgomery: “he makes a lot of plays every day in practice. His energy on the football field is contagious. He’s going to have a heck of a year for us.”

“Jaylin Alderman is going to be special on the football field, and Jackson Hamilton as well.”


“We have great depth at corner. Tre (Clark) has put in so much work this offseason. Greedy Vance is going to be really good, he can start if we need him to. JUCO Trey Franklin continues to make plays.”

“The safeties are coming along. Kenderick Duncan Jr had been a tremendous leader. Q Cole just got here, but he’s jacked up wnd quick as a cat. Ben Perry made some plays today along with Bralyn Oliver.”

“Kani Walker is getting better every single day. I think I have 5 corners that can come in and play really well.”

“Chandler Jones and Ken Duncan are leaders in the back of the defense.”
