H.S. Scouting Report

Evaluated 08/26/2023

Andrew Ivins
Andrew Ivins Director of Scouting

Two-point edge player that can turn the corner and apply pressure. Under 6-foot-4, but doesn’t lack length with 34.5-inch arms and a near 6-foot-10 wingspan on file. Not only flashes plenty of initial quickness, but can bend and strike. Displayed plenty of range on Friday nights down in the Sunshine State and constantly shot outside to contain runs. More of a finesse rusher at this stage, but has a chance to morph into a more of a complete defender once he undergoes a physical transformation as that should help him anchor and get off blocks. Will probably need a developmental year or two before he’s ready to crack the rotation at the school of his choice after totaling just three sacks as a senior, but has a higher ceiling given burst and reach. Likely going to find most success in an odd front.

H.S. Athletic Background

2023: Totaled 36 tackles (16 TFL), 7 PBU, 3 sacks, 2 FR and a FF as a senior. Helped Gadsden County qualify for Florida's 2S playoffs.
2022: As a junior, racked up 56 tackles (13 TFL), 11 QBH, 6 sacks and 2 PBU. On offense, hauled in a 80-yard touchdown against Tallahassee Chiles while doubling as a tight end.
