H.S. Scouting Report

Evaluated 11/10/2023

Andrew Ivins
Andrew Ivins Director of Scouting

By far one of the more unique prospects in the 2024 cycle given measurements and background. Well over 6-foot-6 and believed to be pushing 6-foot-8. Former soccer player that started football career off playing quarterback before transitioning to tight end and then eventually defensive end. Recruited by most schools to rush the passer at the next level, but doubled as an offensive tackle during senior season and actually flashed plenty of potential in that role. More of a finesse rusher at this stage that lacks the desired play strength, but likely to undergo a major physical transformation once lifting in a college weight room, which could unlock some things. Can work laterally, but has to learn how to not get washed away. Should be viewed as a developmental take with rare features. Could morph into a true difference-maker if it all comes together.

H.S. Athletic Background
