Scouting Report

Evaluated 05/25/2023

Andrew Ivins
Andrew Ivins Director of Scouting

A high-IQ safety prospect with elite NFL bloodlines and a top-flight testing profile. Measured roughly 6-foot, 170 pounds spring before junior campaign, clocking a 4.5-second effort in the 40-yard dash that day to go along with a 4.25-second short shuttle. Quick-footed with plenty of agility. Has spent most of prep career working in a two-deep system and has shown that he can get where he needs to be. Competitive at the catch point and does a nice job of turning his head to find the football. A sound open-field tackler at this stage that will launch at legs and get ball carries on the ground. However, needs to get a little bit better at getting off blocks and sifting through traffic. Will eventually need to add some mass and improve play strength, but should be viewed as a potential multi-year starter for a top 25 program. Likely to find a home at the third level of a defense, but sticky enough in man-coverage possibly warrant a look as an inside corner on Saturdays.

H.S. Athletic Background

Has also ran track at the prep level. Posted a 11.63 in the 100-meter dash back in March of 2022.
2022: Totaled 65 tackles (5 TFL), 8 PBU and 3 INT as a sophomore, helping West Orange make the playoffs in Florida’s 4M classification.
2021: As a freshman on varsity, made 20 tackles and an INT for the Warriors.
