Although smaller for a linebacker, Bissainthe’s versatility is one of his defining traits as a player. Andrew Ivins, a 247Sports Southeastern recruiting analyst, compared him to former Miami and NFL linebacker Jermaine Grace and predicted Bissainthe could one day be an NFL 4th and 7th round pick. . Here is the full review of Ivins:
A new-age linebacker who can play all three downs. Not only did the job on Friday night as a blitzer and space-stuffer, but also proved to be quite useful in pass coverage. Well tested on lasers the summer before the junior season which makes sense given the overall speed of play. Steals soccer and usually arrives on scene with the intention of nailing someone. The nimble feet allow it to get around blocks and make stops. Seems to be most comfortable when asked to go down and corral ball carriers, but he knows how to turn and run with wide receivers / tight ends out of the lunge or stick to carriers. ball coming out of the backfield. The ability to close the gaps is undoubtedly a strength at this point in his development, but needs to stop chasing and improve to complete tackles. Could also get a bit more flexible and will have to tack on some bulk in the hopes of not getting pushed to the next level. Produced in both sophomore and junior before becoming a team leader as a senior in one of Miami-Dade’s most famous programs. Numbers to settle in as an off-ball linebacker in a 3-4 or 4-3 look depending on height and frame (registers at around 6-foot 1,205 pounds). Should be able to contribute after a year or two on campus and have what it takes to eventually put on crampons on Sunday if all goes well.
