Mississippi State Football: Which Bulldog linebacker must step up going forward?

NCAA Football: Mississippi State at Louisiana State Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

A versatile linebacker who plays beyond his years, sophomore Aaron Brule’s talent speaks for itself.

While Brule was a monster to open up the season in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, he has not had that same impact as of late. As the Bulldogs are still finding their 2020 identity, he will have to be a factor for the defense to be feared.

Brule’s quick first step and power make him an immediate threat. Also, he will have to get to the quarterback frequently. Brule’s ability separates him from the norm as it pertains to the linebackers of the Southeastern Conference.

Through the rest of the season, expect to hear Brule’s name called more often. Formidable and intimidating, he has the requisite skills to make the necessary adjustments. Look for him to make game-changing plays to get the Bulldogs back on track.

Hail State!
