Defensive Coordinator
Glenn Spencer:

"Devin is someone we saw out at camp. He’s a raw athlete. We worked with him at camp, mostly out of the safety position. He’s played so many positions at his high school, from running back to defensive end, safety. So he’s a good athlete. He’s a natural competitor. He’s a basketball player. I think the sky is the limit as far as what his body is going to do over the next couple of years. On his official visit, we had him at 230 pounds. So we will have to wait and see once he starts competing where he fits in on our side of the ball.”
