Bio: Three year starter who played six games with the first unit as a red-shirt freshman. Came to Pine Bluff as a defensive tackle before moving to the offensive side of the ball as a sophomore.

Pos: Massive yet athletic lineman who dominates his level of competition. Moves well for a big man, displays range and strength at the point of attack. Controls defenders once engaged in a block or engulfs smaller opponents at the point. Extends his hands and shows good jolt.

Neg: Does not block with solid technique, gets tall and at times does more leaning than actual blocking. Overweight and easily runs out of gas.

Analysis: Offers the natural size and power to play right tackle yet nimble enough to be a blind side protector. Needs to commit to football and year round conditioning but has definite possibilities at the next level.
