 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  The Miami Hurricanes' defensive end combination of Greg Rousseau and Quincy Roche - two of college football's top 10 sack leaders from last season - could already be one of the nation's fiercest tandems. That doesn't even account for what redshirt junior Jaelan Phillips could provide the UM pass rush this fall. The former five-star recruit has finally practiced with the team during the start of spring drills after sitting out all of 2019, following his transfer from UCLA. It's evident Phillips is motivated to contribute as Miami's next pass-rushing specialist. Rousseau and Roche, a grad transfer from Temple, had a combined 28 1/2 sacks last season. "He's a special dude," defensive coordinator Blake Baker said of Phillips. "The thing that's very impressive about him is how well he hits. He understands leverage. He does a great job getting into the offensive tackle's pads."

That's especially encouraging considering Phillips hasn't played in almost two years. Before sitting out in 2019, he missed most of 2018 at UCLA with a concussion and various other injuries. "He's a freak of nature. He's huge. He's fast," Rousseau said. "I'm just happy for him because I know what it's like to come back from an injury. It's tough, and he's worked so hard for these moments and he's really going to take advantage of them. I believe in him 100 percent. We all do." Coach Manny Diaz said that Phillips' presence could push Rousseau and Roche. - Sun Sentinel
