Comparison

Lonnie Johnson Houston Texans

Has a long, lean frame with good stature. Is a versatile athlete who has played quarterback and receiver in addition to multiple spots within the secondary. Likely projects as a defensive back at the next level. Has high-level ball skills at defensive back with the ability to come down with the football in 50-50 situations. Moves fluidly and looks to be most comfortable in off-man and zone coverage at this time. Plays corner primarily but also slides over to safety some. Shows good instincts and breaks on the ball, resulting in a high interception total as a junior. Is a talented, coordinated athlete regardless of where he plays. Will need to continue honing his cover skills as he starts to focus exclusively on defense as he can get caught out of phase at times. Projects as a starter at the Power Five level with the ceiling to develop into a NFL Draft pick.

Athletic Background

Also plays baseball. Recruited by some SEC baseball program. MLB scouts also expressed interest.

2019: Played QB, WR, and multiple DB spots as a junior; threw for 626 yards, 5 TD, 4 INT, while rushing 44 times for 151 yards. Also caught 16 passes for 298 yards and 4 TD.
