Quote on Colorado transfer Jalen Sami
“He’s a good player. He’s a big body and he’s athletic and he’s a great guy. We were happy when he hit the portal. There was some running in the hall trying to get it done.”
Mel Tucker is talking about Colorado transfer defensive tackle Jalen Sami here. He mentioned the lack of depth at the defensive tackle position earlier and how a small rotation leads to fatigue which leads to big runs for the opposing offense.
Listed at 6-foot-6, 330 pounds, Sami brings depth, experience, and a matchup nightmare for opposing centers and guards.
He’s a perfect run stuffer (leading all Colorado defensive tackles in tackles last year) for early downs to set up the defense in second and third-and-long situations which should help them get off the field.
