First-year starter who was named Honorable Mention All-Sun Belt in 2016 after leading Georgia Southern with 9.5 tackles for loss and three forced fumbles. Also posted 104 tackles, 2.5 sacks and one interception. Sat out the 2015 season after transferring from Florida State. Suffered a Lisfranc injury that forced him to miss the start of the 2014 season and was then suspended by the Seminoles for a violation of team rules.
Florida State transfer who made a major impact at Georgia Southern last season. Athletic, fast in every direction and chases the action hard. Gives effort, plays while injured and effectively makes tackles in space. Displays good lateral speed, gets depth on pass drops and shows a large degree of quickness in his game. Easily changes direction, flows well laterally and hits hard. Wraps up tackling and brings opponents down at the point of attack. Gets depth on pass drops and remains disciplined with assignments.
Hesitant and displays marginal instincts. Average ball skills in coverage.
Eligwe is an athletic linebacker prospect with terrific speed. He must improve his play in coverage but has enough ability to get consideration as a backup inside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment.
