Scouting Report

Andrew Ivins
Andrew Ivins Director of Scouting


Power 4 Starter

A slot receiver with some juice that has already established himself as one of the top offensive playmakers in the class of 2025 following numerous strong showings on the offseason camp circuit. Produced as an eighth grader at the varsity level before enrolling at the powerhouse that is IMG Academy. Might be under 5-foot-9 and weigh less than 180 pounds, but still finds ways to get the job done. Pretty advanced as a route runner for his age. Mixes gears well and understands how to create separation with quick cuts or little head fakes. Seems to catch most of the stuff that comes his way and does a nice job of tracking the football down the field before adjusting to make the play. Difficult to corral in a tunnel and will use his burst to jet away from would-be tacklers. Will need to eventually add some body armor if he wants to block and fend off college-sized defensive backs at some point down the line, but has the speed and quickness to emerge as a chunk-play machine at the Power Five level. Destined to find success in a spread attack that has plenty of screens and swing passes in the playbook. Could double as a return man given his ability to make people miss in tight quarters.
