Projection

Power-5 Starter

Has verified size with wide shoulder frame to add muscle and mass without losing speed or athleticism. Impressive dual sport profile with elite speed. Two-time state 55 meter champ with personal best 6.34 seconds. Productive player for one of top Class 4 programs in state. Often runs out 21 personnel formations with stacked defense in box. Is home run threat anywhere on field. Hits hole with purpose and speed. More of a one cut, downhill runner who gets to second level quickly. Routinely out-runs high school defensive backs. Is difficult to arm tackle and does not go down on first contact often. Patient runner who is comfortable running between the tackles but has speed to bounce plays outside. Shows balance and is effective with stiff arm. Can gear down to hit gap and quickly accelerates to get through. Knows how to change pace and has burst to overcome angles. Can be effective pass catcher out of backfield. Has to continue to work on flexibility throughout frame and run lower. Pad level is sometimes high but does not get hit cleanly often. Does not often cut at full speed. Added frame looseness will increase elusiveness. Needs be more consistent running behind pads. Can play early at Top 20 program. Has NFL draft potential.
