From Arizona Desert Swarm:

"I've always played in a 4-3 type of defense and that's what I'm more comfortable with. I think a 3 front is more difficult cause I'm not used to playing in front of the center. I honestly think end would be good for me in a 3 front," he said about his play style. "I am a very physical and aggressive player, I'm willing to learn and have a great work ethic."

Danny Heitert:

Markell Utsey from Little Rock, in a terrible year for in-state defensive tackles, he would have been the best in the state.
