Scouting Report

Andrew Ivins Director of Scouting


Khyiris Tonga Chicago Bears

A space-eating nose with plenty of shed power that can clog up running lanes. Tipped the scales at roughly 6-foot-2, 300 pounds heading into senior season. Blessed with big paws and will use those heavy hands to storm his way into the backfield. Moves laterally better than most his size and will keep his legs pumping in hopes of making a stop. Works low to the ground and consistently generates plenty of forward momentum with his explosive lower half. Has gotten rave reviews from the coaching staff at the national powerhouse that is IMG Academy and is described as a vocal leader in the locker room. Must avoid setbacks and keep evolving as a pass rusher, but should be viewed as a potential impact player in the middle that can anchor on early downs in both odd and even fronts. Likely to eventually carry 325 pounds or more.

H.S. Athletic Background

2022: Worked in the rotation up front for an IMG Academy defense that forced 30 turnovers and gave up just 3.0 points per game. The unit also held opponents to just 2.1 yards per rush and 3.7 yards per pass. In the first four games of the season, was credited with 17 tackles (6 for loss), a QBH and half a sack.
