ACC's Top 25 player countdown: No. 19

No. 19. Alex Wujciak, LB, Maryland

2009 numbers: Ranked second in the ACC and eighth nationally with 10.92 tackles per game. Had two interceptions, was second in the ACC with 131 total tackles, and had 8.5 tackles for loss and two forced fumbles. He returned one interception 70 yards for a touchdown against NC State last year and another 80 yards.

Most recent ranking: Not ranked.

Making the case for Wujciak: He was a first-team all-conference selection last year and is the leading returning career tackler in the ACC with 264. He’s a blue-collar, hard-hitting throwback player who should shine in his senior season and the second year in coordinator Don Brown’s defense. He became more than just a tackling machine in the previous season and showed he was capable of game-changing plays.
