Comparison

Jalen Reeves-Maybin Houston Texans

Good height with thickness, already tipping the scales at 210-215 pounds. Should continue to add mass as he moves to the next level. Father is nine year NFL safety Reggie Tongue. Plays for one of the top high school programs in Louisiana, making some key plays in a state title run as a senior. Plays wide receiver at U-High, but likely projects on defense at the next level. Has some positional versatility with his size and skill set. Very possible he ends up as a safety who could grow into a linebacker. At wide receiver he shows good pace in his routes. Is quicker than fast, with much of his separation coming off the line rather than further downfield. Is a physical presence on the outside. Has solid ball skills, which would translate well to the defensive side of the ball. Will need to nail down a permanent position at the next level. Projects as a Power 5 contributor and potential starter down the line with the upside of developing into a NFL Draft pick.
