Reminds Us Of

Rashad Weaver Tennessee Titans

Has been recruited as both a tight end and defensive lineman and has played both positions at the high school level. As his body continues to grow and develop, we are leaning more towards defense in college. He has an ideal frame for that position. He has filled in and looks physically ready to compete early in his career. He shows some twitch and ability to get off the ball on defense and pursues hard. On offense, he is a good route runner and can make a little happen after the catch also. As it stands, we believe he is a Power Five prospect at either position, but he may be more of a rarer specimen on defense. We believe he can be a combo inside-outside player on the defensive line.

H.S. Athletic Background

Also plays baseball and throws shot put and discus.
Recorded a 46-6 shot put and a 141-0 discus as a sophomore.
2020: Played ample snaps both ways at TE and Edge in his sophomore campaign.
