Etheridge, a captain at Louisville this season, finished the 2020 season with 50 total tackles in 11 games to go with 2.5 sacks and one forced fumble.
As a high school star in the Mountain State, Etheridge helped lead Capital to the Class AAA state championship as a sophomore and then back to the title game again when he was a junior. Etheridge was a three-time West Virginia Sportswriters Association all-state pick and chose Louisville over West Virginia, Virginia Tech, Maryland, Pitt, Purdue and Marshall.
