ANTHONY RABASA

LB, ��ɉ�ɉ�ɉ��, 233 pounds, 6’3″

Columbus High School

Miami, Fla.

A speed-rushing type of player, Anthony Rabasa played defensive end in high school, but will likely join the Notre Dame roster as a linebacker. Rabasa was heavily recruited in Florida, targeted by Miami, Florida and Florida State, but verbally committed to the Irish in July.

He has a body type with room to expand, which should help him round out his game stopping the run. Rabasa recorded 10 sacks during his junior year, and utilizes his speed and field awareness to get to the quarterback, which should make the transfer to linebacker easier.

Rabasa joins the Notre Dame roster behind more-veteran Darius Fleming and returning letter-winners Prince Shembo and Steve Filer.
