Lornell McPherson School: Nebraska
Ht: 5-8 Wt: 180 40: 4.51 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Posted 40/0/6 as a senior when he moved
into the starting lineup. Saw sporadic action with
the first team the prior three seasons.
Undersized defensive back with possibilities in
a zone defense. Displays adequate footwork
in reverse, fluid turning his hips in transition
and effectively coordinates with safeties. Picks
up assignments and stays with opponents.
Possesses a burst of closing speed.
Struggles in man-to-man coverage, not quick
reading receivers' eyes or getting his head
back around to locate the ball. Does not play
to his timed speed. Slow getting off blocks
and helping in run support. Does not high point
the ball, misjudges pass defenses and does
more chasing than actual covering.
McPherson possesses the technical skills and
shows enough flashes of ability backed off the
line of scrimmage to be considered for a team
that employs a zone defense.
