McDowell is a 6-foot-2, 205 pound safety in the 2014 class and he 63 tackles as sophomore. He is known as a big hitter.
"Oh yeah, he liked to hit. He comes up and plays physical as a safety. He can run and he just likes to get in there and make plays," Satterfield said.
The Locust Grove, Ga. native has watched some top safeties in college and he tries to learn from them.
"John Boyett from Oregon, Bacarri Rambo from Georgia, and Mark Barron from Alabama are three [safeties] I have really paid attention to. They can all make plays and I have watched them for a few years," McDowell said.
Not only does McDowell hit in a big way like his coach said, but he tries to play smart as well.
"I want to identify the play and the ball very early. When I play starts, I feel like I can recognize what is going to happen. I have a good idea where the ball is going, and I try to get in position to make the play."
