Azeem Victor, Outside Linebacker
Offer sheet: Colorado State, Fresno State, Hawaii, Houston, Nevada, San Diego State
In the modern era of football, multiplicity on defense is a necessity. Having guys who can do many things and play more than one position is a must to deal with the differences that you'll see from game to game, or even play to play. Azeem Victor fits into that mold, as he played all the linebacker positions in high school as well as defensive end. He's got the versatility to move around in Justin Wilcox's defense, but his eventual landing spot looks to be as a middle linebacker.
Victor is in line with what the defensive staff wants on defense. A long athletic player who can really close space on opposing offenses. If a lot of the guys from this class pan out, the starting defense is going to be averaging like 6-4 across the board in a few years.
Though his offer sheet doesn't look very impressive, he was a guy that many programs were hard charging after late in the cycle once they got a look at his senior film. He's a player with a lot to learn, but big upside. Peter Sirmon and Justin Wilcox are happy to get their hands on him.
