Scouting Report

Evaluated 08/24/2023

Andrew Ivins
Andrew Ivins Director of Scouting

A full-field reader that’s at his best when looking to attack the second-level of a defense. Size hasn’t been verified in a while, but in-person evaluations suggest that he’s over 6-foot and likely hovering around 200 pounds. Throws an accurate, catchable ball and can beat coverages with touch. Will pick apart defenses when plays stay on schedule and the pocket is kept clean. Has already been asked to make pre-snap adjustments and does a favorable job of disguising his intentions. Not afraid to take a deep shot, but arm can present some limitations. As a sophomore, led his team to a 10-4 record and the state semifinals in one of the Peach State’s higher classifications. Must keep progressing, but has some of the tools required to win games on Saturdays. Could thrive in a balanced, timing-based system that wants to get the ball to playmakers in space.
