Scouting Report

Evaluated 01/27/2022

CooperPetagna
Cooper Petagna National Recruiting Analyst

Verified at 6-foot-1 and 200-pounds plus, possesses the growth potential to add additional weight to his frame. Two-way prospect that displays above average athleticism on both sides of the ball. Plays running back in a triple-option offense and stand-up outside linebacker on defense.

Inside runner with a physical downhill mentality. Plays with one speed that translates to more of a change of pace back at the next level. Exhibits adequate short area quickness and change of direction ability. Flashes some ability to make the first defender miss and excels on contact. Plays with a good center of gravity and demonstrates good play strength, flashing power to finish off his runs. Appears to have adequate play speed, lacking long speed in the open field to separate from defenders.

Strong runner with a lean frame that projects to a short yardage change of pace role in the backfield at the next level. Will need to continue to monitor his weight as he develops into his frame, could potentially be a better fit on the defensive side of the ball. Projects to a developmental starter at the next level at a Power Five program, with the ability to add value on multiple special teams units.
