Exclamation Conference USA Position Previews: Linebackers

UAB: The Blazers happily return First Team All-C-USA tackling machine Kristopher Moll... except he transitioned to safety this offseason, thus leaving a new batch of linebackers to follow in his footsteps. But a fresh face enters the field from Death Valley after sitting 2020 out with a redshirt. Outside linebacker Justin Thomas started one game for the 2019 LSU team that finished 15-0 with a national championship. Second Team All-C-USA selection Noah Wilder will control the heart of the defense, where he managed 50 tackles and 4.5 TFLs last fall. Former All-C-USA Freshman Alex Wright will be another key returner, as he has made a name for himself pressuring opposing quarterbacks. Rounding out the stellar group is Deshaun Oliver Jr., a rather inexperienced inside linebacker who managed to force one fumble in limited 2020 action.

RE: Conference USA Position Previews: Linebackers
And once again, the experts are not even aware of some of UAB’s best players. Kellie Sanders and Ty Taylor are going to be BEASTS. That the coaches could even consider moving Moll, arguably the most productive LB in the conference the last two seasons, ought to be a clue. And then added an Arizona transfer to the secondary also, one that was already stacked.

Great to see Taylor on the roster after he apparently missed spring. He was playing very well the last 2-3 games of 2020. I think he could be a difference maker if he builds on that.
