I mentioned him a while back when discussing DT's to watch for this year's draft (But that was before Illinois DT Josh Brent went pro) but I wanted to start a thread on this guy. He's been playing at a really high level this season, and against Ohio State yesterday he had 11 tackles, 2 TFL and 1 sack. He made his presence felt all day against NFL caliber OL on the OSU offensive line. He also did the same thing against Missouri (And the other two opponents for that matter). He is a true junior defensive tackle who was highly rated coming out of Miami. Miami, LSU and the other heavyweights wanted him. He had an impressive start as a freshman and then had injuries last year as well as playing about 30 pounds overweight from bulking up too much. He has slimmed back down to 290 or so at 6'3 and is a beast. Very strong and can move. I think you'll be hearing his name as well as some others on the Illinois defensive line this year and beyond.
No announcement yet.
Corey Liuget, DT, Illinois
