Carlisle will play for Coffeyville in 2011
As a freshman at Butler last fall, Carlisle played quite a bit posting 50 tackles, five tackles-for-loss, one sack and one fumble recovery from his outside linebacker spot.
"I'm more of a run-stopper," Carlisle said. "I read plays well and I'm a sure-tackler when I get there.
"I want to get my pass-drops down and just get smoother into them. I have 4.6 speed, so I have the speed to do well in coverage, but it wasn't something I was really good at so it's been a focus for me this offseason."

"Kentucky really likes me a lot and said they are getting close to making a decision on whether to offer me or not," Carlisle said. "I also have heard a lot from LSU, BYU, South Florida and Toledo."
Carlisle is on pace to graduate in December and he will have three years to play two wherver he ends up.
