H.S. Scouting Report

Gabe Brooks National Scouting Analyst

Owns the requisite size and frame of a versatile tight end with frame potential to play attached and functional athleticism to flex out. Owns ample frame space to add mass if desired.

Dynamic playmaker with big-play punch, especially in run-after-catch scenarios. Shows deceptively good field speed relative to size. Displays short-area suddenness and nuance to evade initial tackler.

Size, catch radius, and athleticism foster dangerous contested-throw and red-zone weapon. Overwhelms smaller defenders to high point and win balls. Owns valuable two-way experience with snaps off the edge to add context to overall abilities.

Also a basketball standout. Not only shows impressive sport-specific skill, but flashes above-the-rim finishing ability with one-foot jump athleticism to punch it in the open floor. Transfers those abilities to the gridiron on a regular basis.

Deceptive field speed creates chunk plays, but can still get faster at the top end. Extensive experience flexed out and as a true outside receiver, so may need some seasoning to acclimate to POA combat in in-line situations. Good two-sport athletic profile, but lacks verified athleticism in regards to combine testing or track and field.

Entering senior season, looks like one of the top tight end prospects in the country's 2023 recruiting class. Projects to the high-major level with the physical tools and projectable profile that suggest NFL Draft candidacy in the long run.
