H.S. Scouting Report

Evaluated 07/05/2023

Cooper Petagna National Recruiting Analyst

Unverified at 6-foot-2 and 250-pounds, appears to possess growth potential to add additional weight to his frame. Two-way prospect that displays good athleticism on both sides of the ball. Primarily lines up in a two point stance in a standup outside linebacker role on defense.

Exhibits good knee bend and hip flexibility off the edge. Demonstrates excellent play speed as a pass rusher and plays with very little wasted motion. Sudden mover that has the capability of winning with speed, quickness, and power at the point of attack. Shows the ability to close space quickly and make plays down the line of scrimmage. Moves well for his size, plus flashes the ability to drop and play in space. Displays good play strength and shows the ability to seal the edge and hold the point of attack against the run. Difficult to quantify athleticism because of lack of verified data points but offensive targets at the tight end position reveal a very good athlete.

Well rounded pass rusher that plays the run and pass equally as well. Dominates inferior competition with speed, athleticism and strength off the edge. Projects as a 3-4 OLB at the next level but could potentially grow into an end depending on the scheme. Lacks verified information in the evaluation process but overcompensates with plus production and excellent play speed. See as a Power Five multi-year starter with the ability to potentially outperform his grade projection.

H.S. Athletic Background
