Exclamation Conference USA Preseason Position Previews: Defensive Line

UAB - Honorable mention all-conference selection Tyree Turner highlights this group as he returns for his SEVENTH season of NCAA football (five at South Alabama, two at UAB). Turner primarily protected against the run as a defensive tackle but Bill Clark started to use Turner as a nose tackle more often later in the season. Antonio Moultrie is also back after earning second-team all-conference honors last season. Moultrie is a dynamic player at 6’4”, 285. The big man saw snaps at nose tackle, defensive tackle, defensive end, and outside linebacker last fall. That versatility gives Defensive Coordinator David Reeves a lot of different options for blitz packages. The only notable loss for UAB is super senior Tony Fair who opted to transfer to Auburn for his final season of play. Fair was adept as a space eater in the middle of the defense, but guys like Micario Stanley and Fish McWilliams will have an opportunity to step up and fill the void.
