H.S. Scouting Report

Evaluated 08/05/2020

Gabe Brooks National Scouting Analyst


Power-5 Starter

Tall and long-levered with tons of frame space moving forward. Build and look of a strong-side end but frame potential to suit multiple roles in varying fronts. Plays very active and motor runs hots. Uses length to advantage when disengaging. Leverage consistency is better than expected relative to naturally high center of gravity. Flashes some counter ability as a rusher. Can improve fluidity and expand pass-rush arsenal. Seems like a particularly high-floor prospect among the nation's elite defenders in the 2023 class.

H.S. Athletic Background

Also plays basketball.
2020: As a sophomore, helped Mentor to a 9-2 record and an Ohio Division I state semifinal berth.
2019: Varsity defensive end as a freshman for a Mentor team that went 13-1 and reached the Ohio Division I state semifinals.
