Sirmon made 33 appearances for the Huskies in four years with the program. This past season, the former 3-star linebacker had 91 tackles, two pass breakups, a forced fumble, and an interception. In the previous three seasons, he had 56 total tackles and 3.5 tackles for loss.
Only four Pac-12 defenders had more tackles than Sirmon last season.
A 6-foot-3 junior from Brentwood, Tennessee, he’ll have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
