H.S. Scouting Report

Evaluated 08/19/2023

Andrew Ivins
Andrew Ivins Director of Scouting

A twitched-up edge rusher that has the physical makeup to make things difficult for quarterbacks on Saturdays. Missed significant time during junior season due to a shoulder injury, but started to really show flashes of what he could be at the next level as a senior in the Peach State’s highest classification, totaling 11 quarterback hurries and six sacks. At one point billed himself as more of a tight end, but finally bought into the idea of being a full-time defender, which makes sense given initial get-off and lateral movement patterns. Weight has fluctuated a bit over the years, but looks to have plenty of growth potential and like someone that could eventually carry 255 pounds or more. More notably, has tested in the upper percentile multiple times with a 7.2-second effort in the three-cone drill on file to go along with a near 10-foot broad jump. Must keep progressing and fine-tuning his craft, but has a higher ceiling as he can dip and shed while attacking corner. Initially was viewed as more of a 3-4 linebacker, but worked primarily out of a three-point stance as a 12th grader and could likely fit into a variety of different schemes depending on how his body matures.
