Personal Life

Qua Russaw was a finalist for Alabama’s Class 6A lineman of the year award as a junior after a season that saw him rack up 130 tackles and more than 27 tackles for a loss. Russaw played his freshman season at Charles Henderson High School in Troy, Ala., before moving to Carver. It was shortly after his freshman year that he landed his first three SEC offers. He said the offers were like "badges of honor" for everything he did to get to this point. "It was amazing," said Russaw, who also runs track and was timed at 11.70 seconds at 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds during his sophomore season. "I was waiting for those offers, and I worked so hard to get to this point. It’s hard to put into words. But I also know I have a lot of hard work still ahead. This is just the beginning of a great journey for me and my family."

2018 Draft: Rnd 1 Pick 22
Qua Russaw is a rugged, high-energy edge defender with outstanding play speed, particularly in pursuit. The Montgomery (Ala.) Carver standout is a smaller pass rusher at around 6-foot-2, 235 pounds and looks to be a comparable on-field athlete to fellow Alabama native Rashaan Evans at the same stage. Both were highly productive players at the prep level with the ability to rush the passer or eventually settle in as an off-ball linebacker.
