Outside Linebacker: 1. Cortez McDowell, 2. Quart’e Sapp
Inside Linebacker: 1. Colton Jumper, 2. Daniel Bituli

Thoughts: The injury to Darrin Kirkland Jr. really shook up this unit, and it’s going to thrust some younger players into some playing time as part of the linebacker rotation.

Colton Jumper will take over in Kirkland’s absence, and sophomore Daniel Bituli will likely back him up. Expect to see Cortez McDowell as the other main linebacker on the field, and redshirt sophomore Quart’e Sapp should be his relief.
