Cousin Southern Miss Bound

Cousin Southern Miss Bound

Defensive tackles are at a premium in college football, and Southern Miss added a good one last weekend. Camden County (GA) tackle Devlyn Cousin made his intentions known after a campus visit, and he talks about his commitment here.

Coach Dan Disch knows the Jacksonville, FL area well, and he also knows to have a successful defense he must load up on defensive tackles. He had both happen in Southern Miss' most recent commitment.

From Camden County High School in Kingsland, GA, Cousin took an unofficial visit to Southern Miss last weekend. He had an incredible visit and knew he had found the place he wanted to play college ball.

"When I went to visit a few days ago, I sat down and talked with Coach Fedora and I really liked him a lot," he said.

"He is a family guy and he is always for the players, and all the coaches are real cool and just want what is best for the players."

He talked about some of the things that he liked about Southern Miss and the football program.

"They have a winning program, 17 straight winning seasons, and bowl games every year," he said. "I want to be a part of a winning tradition."

Coach Adams, defensive line coach, told Cousin on his visit how he could see him used in the future.

"They want me to play defensive tackle, and more of a three technique with a shade to the nose," he said. "He said that I could come in and play early, or I could sit the bench. They were real with me, they said it was my choice about whether I was going to come in and make a difference or not."

For now, Cousin is gearing up for his senior season where he hopes to elevate his team to the next level.

"We start two-a-days here real soon," he said. "We go to team camp in two weeks and we'll really get after it then. I don't plan on any other college camps."

Eagle fans will get excited hearing Cousin talk about his abilities and what he will bring to Southern Miss.

"I am a high energy guy," he said. "I love the game of football and getting after it. I hit the linemen every play, and I like to fly around even at 275lbs. I have a high intensity motor and I love to get after it." Recommended Stories
