 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  When Texas coach Steve Sarkisian says every player has a clean slate, it means a clean slate. David Gbenda is using his to reshape his college career. The sophomore linebacker from Katy has shown flashes of real athleticism the last two seasons. In 2019, the previous coaching staff asked him to play running back when depth became an issue. Then last season, he went back to defense and had solid impacts against Oklahoma, Kansas State and Colorado in the Alamo Bowl.

The Texas linebackers corps needs more playmakers, especially now that Juwan Mitchell has transferred out. Gbenda (pronounced bend-a) is ready for all the opportunities this new staff will provide. "David Gbenda has been terrific. Been very, very impressed with him," Sarkisian said this week. "He is flying around the football field, playing physical. He's got a real leader's mentality." Other teammates have noticed, too. "David's communication skills are very good," defensive tackle Keondre Coburn said. "He's going to be a very exciting player coming up this year. So I'm really excited for him." - Austin American Statesman
