Projection

Power-5 Starter

Comparison

Drue Tranquill Los Angeles Chargers

Jack of all trades both on the football field and as far as other sports go. Has a track and basketball background. Good high school player on offense but future projection is at linebacker. Has all the athletic tools to be a three down backer. Has a longer frame and is a coordinated player. Ball skills and movement skills suggest he will be an asset in coverage at his position. Has to fill in and get stronger. Not as violent of a striker currently but additional strength and bulk should add to that. Big upside and has the type of profile that typically turns out well once full concentration on one position can be had.

H.S. Athletic Background

Also plays basketball and competes in track and field.
Iowa 2A state high jump champion (6-7) as a sophomore. Also qualified for state in discus with throws of 140-8 and 146-6 in May 2022.
-----
2022: Played both ways with extensive snaps at receiver, tight end, and safety. Produced 37-628-12 receiving, plus 60 tackles, 4.5 TFL, and six INTs (one TD).
