Live Evaluation:

"When I saw him against Butler, he made some plays," Southeast recruiting analyst Chad Simmons said. "He scored a touchdown and he showed he knows how to get open. He is really built more like a running back than a wide receiver, but he has good quickness, he really attacks the ball with his hands, and he can be used in multiple ways at Minnesota.

"His balls skills, power, and quickness are three of his strengths, but he still needs to work on his route running and down field blocking. His height and length will not change, but he knows how to make the most of what he has to work with.

"He is not a burner down field, but he is fairly shifty and quick. He can play inside receiver and be used as a return man and possibly out of the backfield on the next level."
