Biography:
Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign. Struggled with injuries as a senior, playing in 10 games and totaling 41/6/7. Junior numbers were a career-best 62/1,097/13.
Strengths:
Consistent wide out with deceptive speed. Strong, uses his frame to shield away opponents and makes the difficult reception with defenders draped on him. Displays sharpness running routes, stays low on exit and gets separation.
Extends to make the reception away from his frame, looking the ball in and displaying soft hands. Sacrifices his body in order to make the reception. Keeps the play in bounds trying to pick up positive yardage after catching the ball. Alert, knows where he is on the field and gives effort as a blocker.
Weaknesses:
Lacks the second gear and true deep speed. Has been nicked up the past two seasons, which caused him to miss time.
