New commit: Sean Thomas Faulkner LB transfer from The Citadel


Recommended Posts

He has played against big ACC schools being on the East Coast. I imagine Phil will use him to rush the QB and cover intermediate routes. He seemed to play in the box a lot. Our defense was atrocious last year, so I am all for kids that have played on the FCS level.

He's listed as a strong safety, graduated, and he has two seasons of eligibility remaining.

Sean-Thomas is second from right.

I have a question. If he graduated, did he go into the reserves? Almost 100% of Citadel graduates go active duty. Did he get an exception?

Actually the number of graduates that get commissions is 30%

Okay. Thank you for that. I always thought it was similar to the service academies in commissioning rate, but I guess it's more like Texas A&M.

Watching his form, he hits like a linebacker. Eye test tells me he has the mobility to play deep coverage well and goes right at guys. Might be really valuable at a nickel spot. I'm sure his special teams play had a lot to do with getting him here as well.

Texas National Guard was at one point referred to as "The Aggie National Guard".

I actually ran into a Citadel fan yesterday who was aware of this transfer. He said you guys are going to love him and his motor doesn't stop.

Sounds great. Seems like a solid special teams addition at the very least

Faulkner comes to Denton as a graduate transfer with two years of eligibility remaining and is a proven playmaker on the defensive side of the ball. In four games in 2020 Faulkner had 40 tackles, four tackles for loss, and one forced fumble, but it’s the 2019 season that shows what he’s capable of. He started in 11 games, posted 70 tackles, two sacks, and four pass breakups while also making plays on the special teams.
