Scouting Report

Evaluated 09/22/2023

Andrew Ivins
Andrew Ivins Director of Scouting

A new-age defensive back prospect with the straight-line speed to help combat modern passing attacks. Owns some of the more impressive track times in the 2025 cycle having collected various medals at respected meets around the country. Size hasn’t been third-party verified, but is believed to be under 6-foot and full of muscle. Flies around the field and can get outside the numbers with ease. Quick to locate the football and is not afraid to jump a route. Has proven to be a rather spirited tackler in run support and seems to frequently be seeking out contact. Agile and fluid enough in the lower half to man-up with wide receivers and tight ends, but hasn’t been asked to press a ton on Friday nights. Based on what he has put on tape thus far, should be viewed as a potential defensive playmaker for a Power Five program that could play over the top, in the box, or even in the slot. Likely to add plenty of value on special teams units at the program of his choice.

H.S. Athletic Background

Also a decorated sprinter.
Owns the Gonzaga school record in the 200-meter dash (21.58) and was a member of 4x100 and 4x200 teams that hold the program’s best mark.
Placed second in the 55 (6.44) at the DCSAA Indoor Track & Field Championship as a 10th grader.
Qualified for New Balance National Indoor meet in the 60 (6.90) as a sophomore.
As a 9th grader, took first in the 200 and second in the 100 at the DCSAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships.
2022: Second-team All-WCAC selection. In 8 games, totaled 49 tackles (4 TFL) and a FR per MaxPreps.
