Cincinnati 125 for 125 | # 74 Andre Revels


Linebacker | Lettered 2007-09

The top 75 might seem like a strange place for a Linebacker who doesn't rank in the top 10 of any defensive category. Still Revels deserves recognition because of his leadership in the middle of those 2008 and especially the 2009 defense. Revels shared time with Ryan Manalac at the middle linebacker spot in 2007 and 2008 creating a two headed monster of a middle linebacker in both seasons.

Where Revels really stood out to me, and what makes him such a memorable player is the way that he performed in 2009 on what was, essentially a brand new defense. He as well as Aaron Webster were largely responsible for keeping the standards up in the wake of breaking in 10 new starters. And whats more Revels probably shouldn't have been playing at all coming off multiple knee injuries. Still he was the heart and soul of the defense for the best UC team ever. Hard to argue against him being considered one of the 75 best Bearcats.
