H.S. Scouting Report

Evaluated 10/27/2021

Brian Dohn National Recruiting Analyst


4-7 Round Day 3

Excellent frame with length. Suited to play defensive end but could line up as edge and drop into coverage. Three-sport athlete who produces on basketball court and throws shot and discuss. Combination of athleticism and size makes for tough matchup at high school level. Raw but has flexibility throughout his frame. Shows closing speed toward ball carrier and runs well in space. Can chase plays down on back side. Quickness at the snap. Shoots B gap well. At times show speed to get around edge. Body control shows when tackling in space. Technique development is needed. Has to improve ability to disengage and needs to show he can dip shoulder and get around edge. Needs to be more consistent play-to-play. Sometimes pops up too quickly and walks into blocks. Has to increase hand effectiveness to keep offensive tackles off him. Adding strength is needed. Multi-year starter with all-conference potential at Top 20 school. Late round NFL draft potential.
