Bio: 
Two-year starter who was named Honorable Mention All-Pac-12 and led the conference with 127 tackles (9.5 for loss) while adding three sacks, one interception and one forced fumble as a junior. Redshirted the 2016 season after suffering a season-ending foot injury in the season opener. Tied for the team lead with two forced fumbles and made 97 tackles (6.5 for loss) with three sacks, one interception and two forced fumbles as a sophomore.
Pos: 
Nice-sized, athletic linebacker with good upside potential. Patient, stays with assignments and quickly locates the ball. Quick out to the sidelines, has a burst to the action and wraps up tackling. Effectively uses his hands, slips blocks and displays speed in pursuit. Shows the ability to run with tight ends and ball carriers in coverage.
Neg: 
Struggled with injuries in the past. Inefficient and does not always take proper angles to the action. Hesitant.
Analysis: 
Sam is an athletic and versatile linebacker prospect with potential in a variety of schemes. He must smooth the rough edges of his game but comes with good upside and could start at the next level if he continues to improve his game.
