At linebacker, we have probably the best football player on the roster with Markus Bailey. Around him, we have some young guys that got some field time at linebacker last year or on special teams.
This is a position that doesn’t have a ton of depth, but it has a lot of talent. With four senior linebackers graduating, there are all kinds of questions with this position group. But, this is what I have for the upcoming season.
OLB: Derrick Barnes – Covington, Kentucky, Sophomore
MLB: Markus Bailey – Columbus, Ohio, Junior
OLB: Cornel Jones – Miami, Florida, Sophomore
I think this starting group is pretty darn good. Bailey may be the best linebacker in the conference this season. Moving him to inside linebacker will be great for him.
