Austin Spitler, Joshua Perry
Very good downhill tackler. Consistently improving in all areas. Good
speed sideline to sideline. Surprised many with his ability to defend
the pass this past summer. Will obviously get bigger and stronger in
order to take on the rigors of the Big Ten.
Conner is already enrolled, so there should be significant
improvement throughout the spring and summer. He will either be a
Will or a Mike. He would likely start out at No. 4 on the Will depth
chart and No. 3 at Mike. He will get every opportunity to win a
back-up job at either of those spots. If he does not, there won't
really be a need for him on defense this year.
