Scouting Report

Evaluated 03/02/2022

GabeBrooks
Gabe Brooks Midlands Region Recruiting Analyst

Big-framed outside receiver with clear physical tools and athleticism. Approaching legit 6-foot-2 with big reach and corresponding catch radius.

Assembled one of the best verified testing ledgers in the country in Spring 2022, confirming top-end speed and initial explosiveness. That highest gear can perhaps show up a bit more often on the field, but the materials certainly exist to manifest that.

Multi-sport experience with previous basketball participation, while also competing in track and field (hurdles, high jump, relays). General functional athleticism checks out on tape and in live elite camp exposure.

Displays advanced feel for winning in traffic and adjusting mid-air. Good sense of timing and elevates with large reach to expand catch radius. Matchup nightmare for smaller defensive backs. Dangerous red-zone option given physical traits and contested throw success.

Also returned kicks in 2021. Linear juice provides big-play ability in that capacity, which could give a school that option in college.

Appears to be more linear-oriented athletically, but testing data suggests fluidity is there. Generally a hands catcher but ball gets into him on occasion. Needs a runway at times to hit top gear, but the data as a whole suppresses much of that concern.

Production has been solid, but not dominant, relative to many other national-level wideouts. Honing route-running nuance should raise long-term developmental ceiling even higher.

One of the most physically gifted receivers in this class with national top 100 potential. Possesses physical resources to become a legitimate high-major impact player with traits that correspond to future NFL Draft candidacy.
