Tom Lemming; Once I did see his film I could understand what all the commotion was about. This young man can play the game. He has a great understanding of football, reads well, and does a very good job of taking on blockers, staying on his feet, and finding the ball. He could wind up playing either OLB or ILB in college. I believe he is better suited to play OLB. He's smooth at filling the hole, moves easily through traffic, and explodes into ball carriers. He does a very good job of maintaining outside responsibility and also excels when in pursuit. A dynamic ball player.

Tom Lemming; As steady as they come, he's very competitive, shows the strength to play off the blocks of bigger offensive linemen, and he hits like a ton of bricks. He dominated almost every game he played in 2010 showing a good burst, instincts, lateral speed, and toughness. A physical defender who can make plays from sideline to sideline. He plays the game with awareness and reacts quickly to the ball, and he's a student of the game.

Tom Lemming; he makes plays from sideline to sideline, reads well, plays the game on his feet, and shows the hustle and effort that college scouts love to see. His junior film shows him playing ILB and playing it well. He shows the instincts, speed, strength, and quickness to beat blockers to the ball. He's a physical and sure tackler who also excels at pass coverage. He accelerates quickly to full speed. A dominating high school backer who is one of the fastest rising LB prospects in the south.

Tom Lemming; He's quick to fill the holes, plays downhill, is excellent in coverage, very strong at the point of attack, takes very few missed steps, and is a sure tackler. In fact, once he gets there the ball carrier is as good as tackled.
