H.S. Scouting Report

Evaluated 02/05/2023

Andrew Ivins
Andrew Ivins Director of Scouting

A long, reactionary cornerback with foot speed and ball skills. Aces the eye test with a wiry frame that’s pushing 6-foot-2. Has done his best to shut down one side of the field the past two years totaling three interceptions and 59 pass break ups as a sophomore and junior according to MaxPreps. Has played a lot of off-man coverage on Friday nights, but has shown on the 7v7 circuit that he can get aggressive with the hands and press. Does a nice job of opening up his hips and trying to steer wide receivers towards the sidelines. Understands how to turn his head and find the football, which leads to plenty of incompletions. Not afraid to come up and hit a ball carrier, either. Should be viewed as a developmental outside corner prospect with a higher ceiling given his vine-like reach (has a near 80-inch wingspan) and lanky stride (part of a 4x400 squad that won the Florida Relays as a 10th grader). Special teams clips are extremely encouraging as he dances his way around would-be tacklers as a return man. Will need to add some functional strength and continue to refine technique, but has the makeup of someone that can emerge as a multi-year contributor and possible impact player at the Power Five level.
