Scouting Report

Evaluated 10/05/2023

Andrew Ivins
Andrew Ivins Director of Scouting

A longer, reactionary corner prospect that has gotten varsity snaps since he was a freshman down in the fertile recruiting grounds of Miami-Dade County. Size hasn’t been verified, but multiple in-person evaluations suggest that he’s over 6-foot and on the leaner side. Relatively fluid in the midline, which makes him rather effective in press coverage as he mirrors with hips and tries to steer wide receivers towards the sidelines. Has a knack for jumping routes (had three pick-sixes as a junior) and will keep his eyes in the backfield when working in off coverage. Top-end speed is a bit of a question mark at this stage and can struggle at times to keep track of much quicker assignments. Will likely need to add some body armor before he’s ready to go on Saturdays, but should be viewed as a potential multi-year starter that can matchup with large perimeter targets at the Power Five level given his reach. Likely to find success in a defensive system that favors 1-on-1 situations.
