A scouting report from’s Southeast Recruiting Analyst Andrew Ivins is below:
A freaky athlete. Grew up playing basketball and actually swam a little bit in high school before finding the game of football. Believed to be hovering right around 6-foot-3, 205 pounds at the start of his senior season. Owns a thick, muscular build and looks almost like a tight end or even a linebacker in street clothes. Explosive –and more importantly– coordinated in almost everything he does, which likely stems from his hoops background. Hasn’t had the best of quarterback situations over the years, but has still found ways to take over games as he’s uber competitive after the catch and can take a quick screen or swing pass and turn it into a monster gain. Understands how to win at the line of scrimmage with little jabs of his feet before getting vertical. Uses plenty of tempo as a route runner and does a nice job of shaking defensive backs by sinking his hips and exploding in and out of his breaks. Tracks the ball well once it’s airborne and tends to always put himself in position to make a play at the catchpoint, which isn’t surprising seeing as how he’s a double-double machine on the hardwood. Top-end speed has raised some questions inside the scouting community without much verified data available, but does own one of the fastest verified max speed marks in the class of 2023 according to one advanced metric. Has improved significantly as a blocker since he was a skinny freshman and shouldn’t have many issues holding his own out on the perimeter on Saturdays. Will need to master his craft and take to coaching once he arrives at the college of his choice, but has what it takes to emerge as an impact player at the Power Five level with his agility and frame. Likely to settle in as a big outside receiver in a pro-style attack, but could patrol the slot one day and maybe even be utilized as an h-back or “F” tight end of sorts depending on how his body fills out over the next few years. Day 1 and Day 2 of the NFL Draft potential.
He is expected to sign early and enroll at his school of choice in January.
