The leader of the 2018 recruiting class, Jesse Luketa made a solid first impression during his freshman season in Happy Valley, skipping out on a redshirt year to play a crucial part on special teams.

While he’s likely to continue to have a big special teams role in 2019, expect to see more and more of Luketa at linebacker as well. Although it appears he is doubtful to truly challenge for a starting spot there this coming season, Luketa should provide solid depth at both the Mike and Will spots, behind Jan Johnson and Micah Parsons, respectively.
