H.S. Scouting Report

Power-5 Starter

One of the fastest prospects in the class of 2023. Took gold as a junior at Florida’s 3A track meet in both the 100 and 200-meter dashes. Also anchored a 4x100 team that captured first at states as a sophomore. Has been utilized as a gadget player at the prep level getting snaps primarily at running back, but also wide receiver in a spread attack. A bit of a one-cut-and-go type of ball carrier with obvious home run ability given foot speed. Does a nice job of getting out of trouble in the backfield and has a knack for making the first defender miss, at least on Friday nights. Vision is somewhat of a strength as he understands how to quickly find daylight. When it comes to catching passes, has shown that he can track the ball over his shoulder and create separation on deeper routes with his extra gear. Owns valuable experience in the screen game, as well. However, must add some functional strength/body armor over the next few years as contact balance is something that needs to improve, especially if he wants to find success running in between the tackles at the Power Five level. Not one that offers much value in pass protection, either. Overall, should be viewed as a potential weapon on Saturdays that offensive coordinators can get creative with. Could thrive in a variety of different systems, but likely to be at his best when he’s getting the ball in space. Profile also suggests that he might be able to make the transition to defense if things were to not work out at running back.
