Kevin Basped (born May 19, 1988 in Sacramento, California is an American college football player. He currently plays as a defensive lineman for the Nevada Wolf Pack at the University of Nevada.

Early years

Basped was born in Sacramento and was raised by father Frances Basped and adoptive mother Kathy Navarro. He attended Florin High School where he played football as a defensive end and tight end. As a senior in 2005, he recorded 18 tackles, 15 receptions for 259 yards, three fumble recoveries, and one blocked punt. He also competed in track & field.[1]

College career

At the University of Nevada, Basped sat out the 2006 season as a redshirt. In 2007, he saw action in 13 games including five starts. He recorded 50 tackles, 4.0 sacks, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery. He ranked sixth in the Western Athletic Conference in tackles for loss with 11.5.[1]

In 2008, Nigel Burton took over as Nevada's defensive coordinator and instituted a 4–3 scheme. The new system relied on the speed of Basped and fellow defensive lineman Dontay Moch to penetrate from the edge.[2] That season, Basped saw action in all 13 games, where he recorded 50 tackles (35 solo and 18.5 for loss), 10.0 sacks, three broken-up passes, and three forced fumbles.[3] Basped finished the season tied for 21st in the nation in number of quarterback sacks.[4] The Western Athletic Conference (WAC) named him a first-team All-WAC defensive lineman.[5]
