H.S. Scouting Report

Evaluated 02/13/2023

Cooper Petagna National Recruiting Analyst

Estimated at 6-foot-2 and 210-pounds plus, possesses an athletic frame and growth potential to add a considerable amount of weight to his frame at the next level. A three phase player and a multi-sport athlete, displays good athleticism in each phase of the game.

Positioned at the weak side linebacker position, Riddicks possesses outstanding position versatility as a second level defender, showing the ability to play off ball as a pass coverage defender, in the box, off the edge as a pass rusher and sometimes even at the safety position.

Demonstrates good play speed, showing the ability to play in space and drop comfortably in coverage. Flashes excellent football instincts in both the run and the pass, displaying the ability to key and diagnose and play downhill.

Possessing somewhat of a chameleon skill set, the Chilton County standout appears most comfortable as on off-ball linebacker, where his athleticism and instincts are on full display playing sideline to sideline. Projects a multi-year Power Five starter at the next level with the ability to contribute early on defense and special teams. Possesses a unique defensive skill set at the linebacker position with legitimate three down value. Although he checks the boxes athletically, Riddick’s combination of position versatility and football instincts make him one of the best pure linebacker prospects in the country.
