H.S. Scouting Report

Evaluated 11/24/2023

Andrew Ivins
Andrew Ivins Director of Scouting

Big-framed athlete with huge developmental upside as a back-seven defender after playing mostly quarterback his first three years of high school. Measured roughly 6-foot-3.5, 190 pounds with a near 6-foot-9 wingspan spring before senior season. Is still learning how to be a defensive back, but has true sideline to sideline range with his straight-line speed and has shown plenty of physicality on tape. Looks to be most comfortable when he’s working over the top as he hustles to the catch point or to the ball carrier. Must keep improving technique and cut down on the miscues, but could be well worth the wait for someone given how he moves and accelerates for someone his size. Projects as a safety at the next level, but could settle in as more of a box player depending how the body matures over the next few years. Likely will need a redshirt year or two before he’s ready to go, but rare athletic profile (reported a track and field offer from Army) could eventually have him playing on Sundays.
