H.S. Scouting Report

Evaluated 10/12/2023

Brian Dohn National Recruiting Analyst


4-7 Round Day 3

Disruptive player off the edge who possesses the skill set and athleticism to drop into coverage and handle the flat. Made a significant leap as a player since the end of junior season and is playing faster and with more urgency. Has elite size and length and is showing the athleticism to play on the edge in high school but possesses defensive line traits for college. Verified measurements includes an 82-inch wing span and a shuttle in the 4.6s. Continues to grow into his body and improved dexterity shows up on tape. During multiple in-person evaluations at camps, practice and games, his willingness to be coached and take instruction and apply it quickly is noticeable. Markedly more active as a senior and showcasing his ability to play standing up and getting into the backfield. Also takes snaps with hand on the ground, including lined up over the center but best suited to play on the edge of the line of scrimmage. Rangy build with plenty of room for frame development. Gets off quickly at the snap and demonstrates lower body flexibility to dip the shoulder and then explode around the offensive tackle. Speed is his best asset when getting into the backfield but shows technique, include a rip move. Continually keeps his feet moving which makes him difficult to keep engaged on a block. Changes direction well and plays with body control. Sometimes pops up too quickly and loses leverage battle at point of attack and becomes easy to move. Must continue to increase strength throughout his frame so he can handle college-level players and also be more successful to anchor at the point of attack. Worked hard to develop technique and must continue to refine it. Big upside prospect who can excel along the front for a top 20 program. Mid-round NFL draft projection.
