Abdullah started eight of 13 contests in 2019 (45 tackles, four for loss, one interception, two fumble recoveries) and seven of 11 games played in 2020 (33 tackles, seven for loss with three sacks, three forced fumbles). He burst onto the national scene with a second-team All-ACC 2021 campaign, leading the Cardinals with 17.5 tackles for loss with 10 sacks (among 61 tackles, also breaking up three passes) in 13 starts. Abdullah led the team with 14.5 tackles for loss with 9.5 sacks and tied for third nationally with four forced fumbles in 2022, garnering first-team All-ACC recognition (also posting 63 tackles, two interceptions and four pass breakups in 13 starts). -- by Chad Reuter
