Reminds Us Of

Charles Snowden Virginia Cavaliers

Long and skinny with an impressive reach. Measured in at 6-5 the winter of 2019. Shoots off the edge and gets to the quarterback. Flexible. Swipes at offensive tackles to get them off balance. A threat to bat down balls at the line of scrimmage. Best game of junior season came against a team that won an 8A state title when he had five sacks. Must fill out and add strength. Needs to develop more pass rushing moves and get better at working inside. Also has to learn how to fend off double teams. Has one of the highest ceilings out of any South Florida-based prospect for the 2021 cycle given frame, but will need time to mature as he’s got to add at least 25 pounds of muscle before he’s ready to take on college offensive linemen. NFL potential.

H.S. Athletic Background

Helped lead Miami Northwestern to region quarterfinal round of 5A state playoffs in shortened senior season…earned first-team All-Dade 8A-5A recognition after helping lead Bulls to 5A state championship in his junior season…collected 17.5 sacks that year, including 5.0 vs. eventual 8A state champion Miami Columbus, to pace defense that allowed only 12.4 points per game.
