H.S. Scouting Report

Evaluated 02/13/2023

Cooper Petagna National Recruiting Analyst

Estimated at 6-foot-3 and 200-pounds plus. Possesses a strong frame with growth potential to add additional weight to build. Three phase player that displays good athleticism in each phase of the game.

Physical prospect on the offensive side of the ball that understands how to utilize his frame and play strength as a pass catcher and as a runner in the open field. Flashes excellent leaping ability with the ability to adjust within a wide catch radius. Plays more vertical than in-breaking as a route runner while showing the ability to get linear down field. Appears to exhibit good run after catch production, displaying the ability to consistently play through contact as a route runner and with the ball in his hands.

Has a physical nature to him at the receiver position that is apparent when evaluating him on the defensive side of the ball and special teams. Will need to continue to improve as a pass catcher as he can sometimes let the ball get into his body and fight it at the catch point.

Projects a Power Five multi-year starter at the collegiate level with the ability to contribute early due to his combination of size, speed, and athleticism. Verified track speed matches us up with his play speed, making him difficult to defend in the deep part of the field. Will need to continue to develop as a route runner in the short to intermediate part of the field to reach his full potential but has the physical tools to blossom into a WR1 on Saturdays and potentially Sundays.
