H.S. Scouting Report

Comparison

Sony Michel New England Patriots

A youth football star that found success at various stops before settling into the RB1 role at the powerhouse that is IMG Academy. Explosive in almost everything he does and is fast enough to win his fair share of foot races out on the perimeter. Not one to go down at the first sign of contact and usually is able to get out of trouble with his quick feet and loose hips. A bit of a slasher that can stack cut after cut once he gets past the initial wave of defenders. Tends to thrive on outside zone and toss plays. Will make defenses pay when counters are called, too. Doesn’t get a ton of targets on Friday nights, but has proved to be a difficult cover on the camp circuit as he uses a nice burst to shake defenders of all different sizes. Has tested exceptionally well over the years and has a 4.5 laser-timed 40-yard dash on record to go along with a near 41-inch vertical jump. Will need to adjust to the everyday demands of big-time Power Five football and learn some of the finer points of the position (like how to pick up a late blitz), but should be viewed as an every-down back with big-play ability given his speed, vision and hands. Could eat in a variety of different offensive systems, but skillset might be best suited for a modern day pro-style attack that wants to feed its running backs. Sunday potential.
