This Season

The interior defensive line will have some new faces and returning contributors this year, creating a pileup in front of Sanders. Damonic Williams, Da’Jon Terry, Gracen Halton, Davon Sears, not to mention several talented freshmen, will all be looking to see snaps. Sanders will have to battle for minutes this fall, but will look ahead to 2025 for a larger role.
