Sounds pretty good to me 532 tackles in 3 years = 177 a year!
Luke Kuechly from Boston College is a lighter linebacker, standing 6-2 while weighing 235 pounds. He has a good mind for the game and gets to the ball quickly. He has some problems shrugging off blockers thanks to his lighter weight but is quick enough to escape the blockers before that affects him too much. He finished his three-year college career with 532 tackles and seven interceptions.
