Coach Caragher on Adrian: "Adrian helps us at a position where we need some immediate help having lost Travis Johnson, David Tuitupou and Vince Abbott to graduation. He's got good size and athletic ability and has shown to be effective both inside at the tackle position and outside at the End position. His athleticism stood out on film not just in his pass rush skills, but also seeing him play the fullback position and cover kick-offs. His versatility will give him increased opportunity to see the field."
