H.S. Scouting Report

Evaluated 08/24/2023

Gabe Brooks 247Sports Scouting Analyst

Athletic back-end defender with experience in all three phases and verified athleticism in multiple environments. A receiver early on who made the full-time switch to the secondary. Coincidentally, a weapon in the kicking game at punter as well. Physical tools, football IQ, and athleticism likely make for a core special teamer early in college.

Requisite height and length with frame space to add more mass. Owns excellent speed markers, including a 10.55 100 as a sophomore. Combine testing includes impressive broad jump explosiveness. Track and combine athleticism translate to the field. Triggers quickly and closes fast downhill. Extremely broad pursuit range. Has shown gradual improvement in tackling consistency to the point of being a striking threat early in his senior season. Has gained strength as well, reflected by ability to get ball carriers to the ground even without a clean shot.

Productive tackler who's around the ball regularly vs. the run and the pass. Quick-footed and fluid in coverage with turn-and-run juice. Capable of matching up with receivers, tight ends, and backs. Would like to see more takeaway production in the passing game. Athleticism and triggering ability occasionally lead to overpursuit. Good tackler but technique gets compromised at times.

Early in senior season, represents one of the elite safeties in the 2024 class. Can give you snaps at cornerback, nickel, over the top, and in the box thanks to physical prowess and athleticism. Projects as a potential high-major impact player with traits that could lead to early-round NFL Draft upside.
