Quick hit: A late addition to the class, Boston will come in and give the Tigers' much-needed depth at safety, where the team lost a pair of seniors in Ryan Smith and Ryan White.

Malzahn says: "Very good tackler, a physical guy that we got on fairly late. He got better and better his senior year. I really feel like he'll provide some depth for us."
