Scouting Report

Evaluated 08/26/2023

Andrew Ivins
Andrew Ivins Director of Scouting

A mighty might of a cornerback prospect with an elite testing profile. Posted a laser-timed 4.05 in the short shuttle and a 4.39 in the 40-yard dash at St. Frances Academy’s Pro Day in advance of junior season. Lacks length and is under 5-foot-11, but likes to be the aggressor and isn’t afraid to lower his shoulder pads. Has spent the past few seasons working in both press and off-man coverage. Seems to be at his best when he’s working closer to the line of scrimmage as he does his best to obstruct opponents and fight for leverage. Isn’t one that’s going to lose many races in the deeper third with his footspeed, but in-breaking routes can cause some issues. Has a good sense of what’s going on around him and can anticipate throws. Not the type of defender that’s going to bat 100%, but has the makeup of a potential playmaker in the secondary with the combination of his twitch and confidence. Likely going to need a developmental year or two to get the body right, but should be viewed as someone that could blossom into a multi-year starter for a College Football Playoff regular. Versatile enough to play on the inside or outside and possibly even safety depending on the defensive scheme.
