H.S. Scouting Report

Projection

Power-5 Starter

A bigger edge player that can create some pressure. Measured in at just a hair under 6-foot-4, 245 pounds spring before senior season. More importantly, had a near 82-inch wing span. Could probably hover around 255 pounds at the next level, but frame looks like it should eventually carry 265 pounds or more. Has plenty of experience working as a 6/7-technique in a traditional 4-3 front. Tends to win on Friday nights with power and heavy hands. Somewhat flexible in the lower half and has flashed the ability over the years to bend while running the arc. Not one to bail on a rush and will keep his legs pumping while in backside pursuit more times than not. Adequate snap anticipation and a decent first step allows him to wedge his way into the backfield, but at times seems to play at one speed and lack real juice, which makes sense given subpar testing profile. Skillset and larger build suggests that he could probably get the job done as an edge-setting defensive end for a Power Five program, but ceiling might ultimately be highest as a 4/5-technique in a 3-4 look. Likely going to need some time to get adjusted to the physicality of big-time college football after playing in one of the Sunshine State’s lower classifications. However, has produced for three straight years under the lights and owns a promising multi-sport background.
