Scouting Report

Evaluated 03/08/2022

Cooper Petagna National Recruiting Analyst

Unverified at 6-foot-4 and 225-pounds, appears to possess growth potential to add additional weight to his frame. Position projection will be dependent on verified weight and growth potential. Displays good athletic ability at the five technique in a base 3-4 defense while showing the ability to play in a two point stance situationally.

Exhibits good knee bend and hip flexibility in and out of stance. Flashes some quick twitch explosiveness and a good first step off the line of scrimmage. Shows the ability to bend the edge with ease. Demonstrates good play speed with active hands at the point of attack. Can play the run and seal the edge, flashing good play strength in both the run and pass. Displays good lateral chase and backside pursuit ability, showing the ability to close space quickly. High motor player that possesses the athletic ability to drop in coverage situationally if need be.

Depending on size and growth potential possesses the ability to play in both a 4-3 and 3-4 defense, in a two or three point stance. Active perimeter that flashes some athletic upside off the edge as a pass-rusher and shows the ability to play the run. Will need a year to develop but could offer some instant impact ability as a situational pass-rusher. Projects as an all-conference prospect at a Power Five program at the next level.
