H.S. Scouting Report

Evaluated 02/25/2022

Cooper Petagna National Recruiting Analyst


4-7 Round Day 3

Verified at 6-foot-5 and 250-pounds, possesses a long and athletic frame to add additional weight to his frame. Has the ability to put on 25 to 30 pounds of muscle at the next level. Flashes good athleticism on both sides of the ball, showing some ability to play on and off the line of scrimmage on defense.

Demonstrates an adequate first step off the line of scrimmage, more smooth than he is quick twitch explosive. Exhibits excellent knee bend and hip flexibility, showing the ability to bend the edge. Flashes good foot and body quickness, shows the ability to change direction and play in space. Will need to improve play strength at the point of attack at the next level, both in regards to anchoring the run and pass-rush situations. Will have to develop some shock and force in his game to take the next step as a pass rusher.

Long athletic developmental prospect that possesses all the physical tools to be a multi-year starter at a Power Five program but is more of a traits prospect than a football player at this stage of his career. If put in the right environment with exposure to good coaching he’ll have a chance to outperform his current projection. Will need two to three years to develop at the next level before seeing significant snaps.
