Runningthebulls.com is starting a new weekly segment - where we'll take a USF target and get to know him. This week, we take a look at Tarpon Springs (Fla.) East Lake defensive back Devin Abraham - a new USF commit.
RTB: I know East Lake had a really good season last year - how did you think you performed personally?
DA: I think I performed well. I contributed good to the team whenever I could and had leadership where it was needed.
RTB: What player
do you compare yourself to? Tell us about your game as a free safety.
DA: I've never tried comparing myself in all honesty. I try to be a game changer. You know, fly under the radar, make tackles that people don't notice that are actually big stops. Or interceptions that swing momentum - I am a thinker on the field.
RTB: So you're a pretty smart player - pride yourself on reading the offense and making plays.
RTB: How do you think you'll translate to the USF defense? Where will they play you at?
DA: I think I'm going to stay at safety. Coach Cooper likes to have his QB on the defense at safety being able to call out plays and change coverages back at safety. If it stays like that I think I will translate over there pretty good. It'll be tough but I'm willing to put in work to help my future team wherever they need me.
