Jibreel Black never turned into the solid player that he showed flashes of becoming as a freshman. Now, as he gets set to enter his senior year, this is his last chance.
Honestly, though, Black is a man without a position. Most think that he is too small to play defensive tackle, yet he didn't see much time at defensive end this past season either.
In fact, there were games where Black rarely appeared at all. Thought to be a big part of the defensive line rotation before the season, it's now safe to say that 2012 was a disappointment for Black.
With all the young talent being stock piled along the line, though, things won't be getting any easier for him this season. If he is to seize a prominent role, it would appear to be the spot that Will Campbell vacated.
But, as previously mentioned, he'll be faced with stiff competition from a few youngsters, so he'll certainly have to earn it.
