Welcome to our series chronicling the #22Bullies (The New South Florida) USF recruiting class of 2022. The series will breakdown every single recruit and transfer that signed/committed to officially become a part of Head Coach Jeff Scott’s third recruiting class. Help us welcome LB Jhalyn Shuler to the Bulls!
LB Jhalyn Shuler (Coffeyville Community College)
Committed to the Bulls since November 17th, Shuler represents one of two linebackers committed to the position in the 2022 class. Shuler is currently ranked as the 3rd best JUCO LB by 247Sports.com, garnering offers from Texas Tech, Texas State, Western Carolina, and Incarnate Word during his recruitment. At one time, Shuler was a Class of 2020 recruit out of high school before enrolling at Coffeyville C.C. over the last few seasons. Shuler enrolled with the Bulls in January.
Shuler spent two seasons in Coffeyville racking up 88 tackles, 11 tackles for a loss, one sack, and two interceptions.
Run the Tape:
Epitome of the “hit stick” function in Madden. Sideline to sideline linebacker who will fly to ball every play. Underrated in coverage who might surprise some offensive coordinators with his ability to stick to receivers. Physical backer who will challenge offensive lineman that come up to him to block. Not overly aggressive in run defense where he will over-pursue the ball carrier, will read the play before stuffing the hole. Comfortable tackling in space.
Shuler was an absolute PROBLEM at the JUCO level and based on the film, he can be an early contributor for this Bulls defense as the coaching staff looks for the next LBs up with Antonio Grier and Dwayne Boyles remaining with the Bulls for one more year. An addition like Shuler provides the position with much needed depth in 2022 and with a new DC in the building, we might see the LB spot utilized differently come BYU next year. Welcome to the Bulls Jhalyn!
