Scouting Report

Evaluated 03/06/2023

Allen Trieu National Recruiting Analyst

Varied background that includes snaps on both sides of the ball as well as special teams in high school. High-flyer on the basketball court and also has rare results as a track sprinter, high-jumper and thrower for someone of his size. Frame can still support a lot of additional growth. Has a good catch radius and can make catches in traffic. Is by far the best athlete on the field on his film. Will have to adjust to the level of competition in college. Certainly has every needed athletic tool in the kit. Will have to settle into a position -- which is likely tight end -- get stronger and learn the nuances. Defense is not completely out of the question but he has big upside as a flex weapon on offense. Shows willingness and physicality as a blocker so playing on the ball especially after he adds weight is very possible. Big upside with the kind of profile that often ends up in the professional ranks.

H.S. Athletic Background

Other notable track and field markers include: 52-3.5 in the shot put, 162-11 in the discus, 14-1 in the pole vault and 11.05 in the 100-meter dash.
2022: Two-way player for Ainsworth, which plays 8-man football. Got snaps all over the field. Accounted for 25 total TD (14 rushing, 11 receiving) in 9 games per MaxPreps.
