Scouting Report

Evaluated 05/10/2024

Greg Biggins
Greg Biggins National Recruiting Analyst

Lateef is one of the nation’s top signal callers and has been on our radar since he was just a freshman. He has a really nice all around game to him and brings a lot to an offense. He’s a pocket passer with dual-threat ability. He can sit back and make every throw you want from the pocket and has excellent mobility as well. He can make defenders miss and does a nice job extending plays and making something happen outside the pocket. You can run zone read with him and his ability to be an athlete from the pocket adds a lot of dimensions to an offense. As a thrower, Lateef has made some nice strides over the last year. We actually thought he had the best day of any quarterback at the Elite 11 Regional Camp in Los Angels back in March. His arm was live, his release looked tighter and he was accurate to all three levels of the field. He’s a tough kid and a gamer who we’ve seen take some big shots but never flinch in the pocket. He has also shown a clutch gene and has multiple 4th quarter game winning drives on his resume. His game is trending in the right direction and he should make another nice jump when he gets to college.
