A redshirt freshman that will make an impact.

T-Mill just took the for sure starter Defensive End in Kai Higgins. I need someone on the defensive line that will make an impact as well. So my pick is.

Giovanni Reviere - DE

Reviere came in as a tooth pick last year to play defensive line. At 6’5”, 230 pounds, he was much too thin to play on the line in the B1G.

Well that has all changed now.

Giovanni is 6’5, 270 pounds now. The redshirt year has done wonders for him. I do believe that he will start opposite of Kai Higgins this upcoming year. I see Reviere as more as pass rusher than I do a run stopper.

He has long arms and great burst off the line of scrimmage from his HS film and seeing him in spring ball this year. He may be a guy that starts for 4 years at defensive end or, if he continues to bulk up, we could see him playing the three tech when Big George gets here later on.

For this year, I have him at defensive end on my team.
