Glad we’re in a position for the nation to see Ed Oliver beasting on a weekly basis. This has to be helping recruiting.
Ed Oliver, DT, Houston 82.0
One of the top stories of the recruiting cycle was Oliver’s commitment to Houston after ranking as one of the nation’s top defensive tackles in most recruiting circles. He’s made an instant impact with an 85.4 grade against the run and a run stop percentage of 23.4 percent that leads the entire nation, not just true freshmen. For added perspective, last year’s run stop percentage leader, Alabama’s Jarran Reed, made a stop on 13.4 percent of his run snaps. Oliver’s 155 snaps rank second only to Auburn’s Marlon Davidson among true freshmen interior defensive linemen.
