Spring Report - Linebackers

The linebacker position is anchored by senior middle linebacker Reggie Carter. Like the rest of this Bruin football team, Carter has had a rigorous offseason and is now tipping the scale at 240. This is a very important season for the four-year starter.

For those that are going to attend spring ball, you see that Carter hasn't missed many workouts since the season ended last December. Look for Carter to be up for a lot of postseason prizes.

Backing up Carter at the Mike backer position will be sophomore Steve Sloan who garnered a lot of experience a year ago as a redshirt freshman. Sloan showed flashes of his potential, but needs to react quicker to fulfill his potential.

Sloan will be fighting off redshirt freshman Patrick Larimore who had a strong offseason to go with a solid effort on the scout team last year. Larimore backed down from no one on the scout team and wasn't afraid to mix it up.

Walk on sophomore Lucas Barbosa is listed fourth on the spring depth chart.
