H.S. Scouting Report

Blair Angulo Mountain Region Recruiting Analyst

Reminds Us Of

Brevin Jordan Houston Texans

Big-bodied prospect with broad shoulders and thick lower half. Strong and powerful tight end with multi-faceted skill set. Imposing pass catcher with above average hands. Flashes good route running ability and tough to bring down in space. Shows consistent presence over middle of the field to create issues for linebackers. Willing run blocker who seals the edge well. Demonstrates technique that should make him a three-down contributor. Could continue to improve overall fluidity and out-of-stance explosiveness. Potential multi-year starter at elite Power Five level.
