A simple truth is taught to everyone who plays football & that’s low man wins. Pad level and leverage are crucial to success for a good pass rusher. Josh Randall exemplifies these traits & then some. Most college programs prefers its pass-rushers to be long and tall, even though a natural advantage exists for shorter defenders. Randall proved that this past season racking up 26 sacks & 4 forced fumbles. Now that’s what I call production, especially for an edge rusher that’s 5-11 & 215 pounds.
I don’t think you’ll find a pass rusher in this 2020 class with a better get off & motor than Randall. No he doesn’t have the size of Newman’s Brandon Williams & John Curtis’s Angelo Anderson, but when you turn on his film it’s tough to not put Randall at the top of the list. His ability to sack the quarterback is simply a skill, not a genetic trait.
College offenses continue to lean more heavily on the passing game these days. The game isn't played from tackle to tackle anymore like 10 to 15 years ago. Randall plays with very good bend coming around the edge, which makes it tough for these 6-3 or taller tackles. Randall would be a perfect stand up edge rusher in a 3-4 scheme on the next level along with being an outstanding special teams player.
I envision this kid to rack up double digit sacks again this upcoming season & continue to be a quarterback & left tackle’s worse nightmare.
Randall received his first offer from Lamar University a few weeks ago, but he has a few other schools like Murray St, Nicholls St, McNeese St, & Southern that’s on the verge of pulling the trigger as well. Tulane could possibly offer Randall as well down the line after he dominated their camp last weekend winning all of his 1 on 1 reps.
