Scouting Report and Projection: He is an excellent one-on-one player and by that I mean he beats his man one-on-one virtually every play, but then his next move is crucial and he doesn’t always impact the play as well as he could. That will come with experience and working in a defensive system that relies on players to help each other and set up opportunities. Strong, physically he punishes opposing linemen. He has good forward movement but can improve with his side-to-side mobility. He is a perfect candidate to red-shirt and use that year with the strength and conditioning staff to ready himself and improve on fundamentals. Because of his superb physical gifts I could see him contributing as a second-year player in the program and pushing for starting duty in his third-year in the program.
