Scout.com Analysis 

Max Cummins is a late-cycle riser who garnered Power Five attention following a solid senior season. Cummins possesses an excellent frame and a lot of potential for bulk addition as he fills out in a college weight program. He's tall and long has ample space on his frame. Cummins is a high-energy player who has experience playing multiple positions on the defensive line. He projects best as a strong-side end in a four-man front, but has the room to add weight that could allow him to slide inside in certain situations. Cummins can improve his leverage and pad-level consistency. He will need to adjust to the jump from private school football to high-major college football. Cummins may not be a first-year contributor, but because of his potential for growth and his high motor, is a good developmental prospect with a fairly high ceiling down the road. - Gabe Brooks, Scout.com Midlands Recruiting Analyst.
