2018 Season Countdown: #55 Drew Singleton

2018 Season Countdown: #55 Drew Singleton

July 11, 2018

Drew Singleton

Name: Drew Singleton
Height: 6’2″
Weight: 219 lbs.
High school: Paramus (NJ) Catholic
Position: Linebacker
Class: Redshirt freshman
Jersey number: #8
Last year: I ranked Singleton #78 and said he would be a backup linebacker (LINK). He redshirted.
TTB Rating: 83

Singleton was a very highly touted linebacker, but he tore his ACL as a senior in high school. Cameron McGrone seemed to heal from his ACL injury very quickly, but Singleton took a little bit longer, which impacted his ability to play last season. Now Singleton has a chance this season to spell Devin Bush, Jr. at middle linebacker. Bush rarely came off the field last season, but this year maybe he’ll get a little bit of a break. Plus Michael Wroblewski was his primary backup last season, and Wroblewski graduated. I expect to see Singleton gets his feet wet this year and perhaps get prepared to succeed Bush, who could potentially leave for the NFL in the 2019 draft.

Prediction: Backup middle linebacker

    Best part of this countdown is, when we get behind, Thunder starts cranking out 2-4 per day. Nice

    As for Singleton, my how things have changed. We now have a gluten of young talent on our 2d string. We’re approaching a level of “reload” vice rebuild, at least on D
