H.S. Scouting Report

Evaluated 01/21/2023

Andrew Ivins
Andrew Ivins Director of Scouting

A two-way playmaker that made a difference on both sides of the ball as an 11th grader for a Miami Central program that captured a Sunshine State 2M state title. Viewed by most scouts and coaches as a wide receiver long term, but has the size/length that everyone covets in the secondary (believed to be hovering right around 6-foot, 170 pounds) and can cover a ton of ground on the backend. Came up big for the Rockets in an upset of IMG Academy as he jumped an out route from his corner posting in the fourth quarter and strolled into the endzone for the go-ahead score. Could probably defend the perimeter on Saturdays, but ceiling might ultimately be highest on defense as a single-high safety given how he takes angles and gets to the catch point. When it comes to his prowess on offense, should be viewed as a deep threat that can move the chains with post and go routes. Does a nice job of getting vertical and not giving up on a play. Will eventually need to settle on a position, but looks like one of the top talents down in the 305 for 2024 cycle. Likely to need some time to get acclimated to the speed and demands of Power Five football, but has impressed in pretty much every setting since he first emerged on the scene as a sophomore.
