247 Sports Scouting Report

Adequate size but limited frame relative to position projection. Owns a unique multi-positional background on both sides of the ball. Has played tight end and fullback on offense, plus interior D-line in four- and three-man fronts. Flashes impressive lateral quick-footedness that aids in terrific pursuit ability. Motor runs high. Range from sideline to sideline vs. the run. Runs very well for his size, to the point of being a RAC threat on offense. Also high-points and shows good ball skills at tight end. Leverage aids in promising close-quarters power, whether as a blocker or when attacking an O-lineman. Less-than-ideal frame limits physical ceiling. Occasionally gets overwhelmed by size/strength in the phone booth. Athletic context limited to one track time from sophomore year, albeit a good one (11.53 100). Plays seek-and-destroy defensive style and must hone technique, including get-off consistency and expanding move set. Very unique defensive line prospect with promising collection of tools. Projects to high-major level as potential multi-year starter once developed.
