At LB, the preseason has shown us 8 capable players who are ready to play in the Buffalo LB tradition. Jordon Dizon has been an amazing surprise and could be the first freshman to ever start at LB for the Buffs. Also the focus on the linebacker is back where it should be here at CU with our new Defensive Coordinator. We welcome you Mike Hankwitz. Dawn and Iwuh are all playmakers that I love. I can’t wait to see Dizon in action. This group looked to be a weakness before, but now it seems ready to prove it will be a strength.
