CooperPetagna
Cooper Petagna National Recruiting Analyst

Verified near 6 feet and 170 pounds, possesses growth potential to add additional weight to his frame. Displays good athleticism at multiple positions in the secondary, showing the ability to line up as a corner, safety, and slot defender. Adds value in all three phases of the game.

Exhibits good knee bend and hip flexibility and transitions smoothly out of his back pedal. Efficient mover. Plays with very little wasted motion. Appears to have excellent short-area change of direction and plant-and-drive ability. Flashes good burst to close out of the back pedal.

Demonstrates good play speed and read-and-react ability at multiple positions in the secondary. Has the range and instincts to play the deep hash, while possessing the reactionary athleticism and quickness to add value as a match defender. Shows some ball production on tape, along with some stickiness as a man defender. Has excellent versatility as a back-end defender and plays with instincts and toughness in both run and pass.

Projects to a high-level multi-year starter at a Power Five program with the ability to develop into an all-conference player at the next level. Will add value on multiple special teams units and wouldn’t be surprised if he sees the field sooner than later collegiately.
