Projection

Power-5 Starter

Comparison

Michael Williams SMU Mustangs

Broad-bodied, burly interior defensive line prospect with close to college-ready size for expected role at the next level. Not tall or long but stout and densely built. Two-way high school lineman who holds his own on both sides, but projects better to the defensive interior long-term. Quick off the ball relative to mass. Shows encouraging short-range lateral mobility, as evidenced by verified 4.85-second shuttle. Plays low and consistently wins the leverage battle. Flashes some heavy-handedness that disables opponents at point of attack. Likely a scheme-versatile defensive tackle with potential to play multiple interior spots in different fronts. Hand placement can improve to help disengaging ability. Raw technically as a defender, but that could help ceiling. Frame-limited so physical potential could be muted. Strong, physical scheme-flexible interior defender who could become multi-year Power 5 starter.

Athletic Background

2019: Started both ways as a junior for a Heritage Hall team that went 11-1 and reached the Oklahoma 3A state semifinals.
