Verse brings strength and precision to the edge where he relies on his strength and technique to get through and around offensive linemen to affect both the pass and run games. While his size won’t blow away scouts, his explosiveness off the line allows him to attack the backfield with ease. Late in games, Verse has shown a tendency to wear down in crunch time. His high motor shows up over and over early in games with his get-off and physicality, but it sometimes comes as a sacrifice to what is left in his tank late in games.

OVERVIEW: Verse has been one of the bigger winners of the new transfer portal rules that allow for immediate eligibility, as he dominated at his first stop at Albany before transferring to Florida State and finding similar success despite the jump in competition. His two seasons with the Seminoles saw him notch two first-team All-ACC honors and an AP second-team All-America nod in 2023 after accounting for 12.5 tackles for loss and nine sacks.
