2001: Had nine starts, including the Peach Bowl, in the Tar Heels two-tight end set. Finished with 12/88/7.5.2
2000: Saw action on special teams and as a back-up tight end behind seniors Alge Crumpler and Dauntae' Finger.
Good: Big bodied tight
end and fine athlete for the position.
Offers his quarterback a huge target, extending his hands and for the most part,
catching the pass away from
his frame. Uses his size as an advantage boxing out defenders for the tough grab and
out-positioning or out-muscling them for the ball. Displays
decent strength at the point and sustains his blocks once engaged with the opponent.
engaged with the opponent.
The Bad: Stiff, does not break down well nor does he play with leverage. Also has difficulty adjusting to the errant throw.
Skinny: Still more athlete than football player to this point and needs a lot of time and reps but mostly,
needs to loosen up.
