H.S. Scouting Report

Evaluated 06/15/2022

Gabe Brooks 247Sports Scouting Analyst

Size not verified but passes eyeball test with above average height and lean frame with space to add mass. Capable of winning contested balls vs. smaller defenders with good catch radius and impressive mid-air body control.

Strong multi-sport profile in track that includes a freshman 10.91 100 and sophomore times of 11.00 100, 21.81 200, and 48.69 400. Speed translates to the field with vertical stretching ability and run-after-catch juice.

Good timing and high-pointing instincts with impressive concentration skill as a deep-ball tracker. Makes late-route catch-point adjustments to snag throws away from defenders. Displays unorthodox, but effective short-area nuance, whether running routes or trying to get loose after the catch. Solid production in Fall 2021 junior season with big-play punch evidenced by 22.3 yards per catch.

Sometimes needs a runway to reach top gear, but does show higher-gear acceleration regularly. Good field speed but fastest track times can more consistently manifest on the gridiron. Track data encouraging but older (none from Spring 2022 junior year). Can produce more consistent initial burst off the line and out of short-game moves.

Very intriguing Power Five receiver prospect with physical tools and multi-sport data that suggest high developmental potential. Projects as a potential multi-year starter with a long-term ceiling that could result in NFL Draft candidacy.
