Projection

Power-5 Starter

Comparison

T.J. Brunson New York Giants

Just over 6-foot. Muscles already developed, but room to only get bigger once lifting in a college weight room. Should be able to play around 225 pounds. A high-intensity football player that’s always in chase mode. Quick to diagnoses plays and react. Combats blocks well while keeping his eyes in the backfield. A physical striker that likes to runs his feet through contact. Productive at the high school level having totaled 115 tackles as a junior. Adequate in zone coverage, but should be better in space given speed and testing profile. Will need to improve transitions and clean up how he finishes. Has a chance to develop into an impact player for a Power 5 program and could eventually have his name on all-conference lists.
