Analysis: There will be a little flux this year and especially next year at the linebacker position as Matt Milano, Ty Schwab and Connor Strachan will all be graduating. Theobald will be an inside linebacker if he continues to play the position that he was recruited for, and is the only recruit committed for that position (of course that can all change when he gets here). The two other linebackers TJ Gardner (who is currently committed at the time of this writing) and Isaiah McDuffie are both slotted in as outside linebacker. There may be room on the depth chart for a freshman behind Connor Strachan, as Mike Strizak has graduated, but I would bet that Jim Reid and Addazio have someone else in mind to fill that role in 2017.
