H.S. Scouting Report

Evaluated 10/12/2023

Brian Dohn National Recruiting Analyst


4-7 Round Day 3

Big-framed receiver who is a red zone threat and can be a mismatch nightmare for defensive backs because of his size. Multi-sport athlete who can play above the rim in basketball. Fluidity as an athlete and explosion in evident in ease with which he runs basketball floor and dunks. Showing big-play ability during senior season in averaging nearly 20 yards per catch. Demonstrates good ball skills and is aggressive going after 50-50 balls. Makes acrobatic catches and is comfortable in traffic. Very good body control and tracks the ball well. Possesses field awareness. Wins one-on-one matchups down the field because of ability to go up and make the catch. Will devour smaller cornerbacks because of his ability to get in the air. Long strider who often gets clean release off the line of scrimmage. Strong, reliable hands. Understands how to work back toward quarterback when play breaks down. Works the sidelines well. Continued route running development is needed, particularly transitioning out of breaks. Is not a burner but size and how well he highpoints ball keeps defenders uncomfortable. Adding some elusiveness after the catch will elevate game in a big way. Has skill set to play early at a top 20 program. Projected as an NFL draft pick.
