H.S. Scouting Report

Evaluated 10/02/2022

Andrew Ivins
Andrew Ivins Director of Scouting

A former rugby player that spent much of his youth in Mozambique before moving to the United States. Is still relatively new to the game of football, but is quickly figuring things out after starting at center as a junior for Clearwater Academy International, which has cemented itself as a hub for overseas talent. Naturally squatty base allows him to find plenty of leverage while a powerful upper half makes his initial punch rather effective. Shifts his weight well for someone listed at 285 pounds and doesn’t have much issues getting east or west. Also doesn’t struggle to get to the second level and put his nose on a linebacker, which suggests that he could thrive in a pin and pull-heavy offensive scheme. Will need to keep progressing and continue to soak up any and all coaching, but fluid movement patterns, explosive hips and prototypical frame (has a 81.5-inch wingspan on file) make him one of the more intriguing interior offensive line prospects in the 2024 recruiting cycle. Should be viewed as a potential multi-year starter in the middle at the Power Five level, but someone that will likely need a few years of seasoning before they are ready to go on Saturdays. NFL upside.

H.S. Athletic Background

2022: Started at center for CAI, which went 10-1 and won its second-straight Sunshine State Independent Association championship. Helped blocks for a Knights’ offense that averaged 7.8 yards per carry and totaled 198.2 yards on the ground per game.
