Scouting Report

Evaluated 04/05/2024

Cooper Petagna National Recruiting Analyst

Verified at 6-foot-3 and change and 225-pounds in February of 2024, Faulk possesses a long and athletic frame with the growth potential to add an additional 15 to 25-pounds at the collegiate level depending on his position projection. Two-way prospect that displays good athleticism on both sides of the ball but is primarily positioned in an off-ball linebacker role with the ability to be utilized off the edge as a situational pass rusher. Multi-dimensional athlete that exhibits excellent position flexibility as it pertains to the next level, demonstrating the ability to strike and defeat blocks between the tackles in addition to the speed and athleticism to drop in coverage and play sideline to sideline on the second level. Flashes outstanding key and diagnose ability and plays with very little wasted movement whether he’s operating as a pass rusher or in an off-ball linebacker role. A natural athlete with a variety of physical gifts, Faulk projects as a high level multi-year starter at a Power Four program while possessing the ability to offer some pass rush ability off the edge before more than likely settling into an off-ball linebacker role at the next level. With that being said, there continues to be discussions surrounding the Highland Home standout’s position projection as it relates to Saturdays.
