 Yasir Abdullah, Louisville, Player News


  Want to see the potential in Abdullah? Look no further than the loss to Virginia last year. He recorded 10 tackles and two tackles for a loss. He had seven tackles the week before against Virginia Tech. The junior from Florida ended the year on a hot streak, recording 22 tackles in the last five games with three tackles for a loss, one sack and one forced fumble. The impression around many is that Abdullah was just getting started and is poised for a strong season this year. If so, Abdullah could be a big part in the Cardinals getting after the quarterback more. I'd buy Abdullah stock right now, because I think he has a chance to be Louisville's top breakout performer this season. - Courier Journal

  Yasir Abdullah had a strong sophomore season, despite having to learn a new defense. He tallied 45 tackles, four for a loss, one sack and two fumble recoveries, but there was still room to improve. As he and co-defensive coordinator (and outside linebackers coach) Cort Dennison talked about ways Abdullah could improve, they discussed a variety of things. One of them was his weight. Entering last season Abdullah was listed at 218 pounds, and as the outside linebacker playing the "Dog" position for Louisville, he was undersized. The "Dog" linebacker is the one who is often a pass rusher on passing downs and sets the edge against opposing offensive tackles, too.

Abdullah will admit that he struggled to do that last year, so he went to work on his body. As the second week of fall camp nears its end, Abdullah is around 235 pounds. The added weight along with his instinct and athleticism has Dennison raving about Abdullah entering the season. "Yasir is one of the most athletic and fastest players on our football team," Dennison said before fall camp began. "Any time you get a guy that is 225 or 230 that can run like he can you can do things defensively and create mismatches." - Courier Journal
