Know your Bulls is a countdown to the kick off. If will look at every single UB football player on the roster. When the players number matches the number of days remaining then it's his turn in the spotlight.

Position: Linebacker

From: Fort Pierce Florida

Played 11 games on special teams last season

You can often tell just how much potential someone has, in the eye of a coaching staff, by how they spend their first season in a program. The standard is to redshirt and in doing this series I've noticed that the vast majority of UB's players have done just that.

Wonderful Monds II broke that mold when the UB coaches put him on special teams last season. He played in 11 games and racked up six tackles, three solo and three assist.

Monds came to UB from Westwood high school, the same school that send us Khalil Mack. Coaches have described him as a very athletic hybrid type player who could play wither safety or outside linebacker.

Football runs in his blood. His father was an All-American at Nebraska, his brother Mario played for the Cincinnati Bengals and Miami Dolphins, and another brother, also named Wonderful, played minor league baseball.

This year coming out of spring camp Monds is backing up the left side of the defense behind the duo of Imani Chatman and Dalonte Wallace. Both of those players are seniors, meaning that the coaches might be in the process of grooming Monds to take over the spot next seasons and make a name for himself with the Bulls.
