Scouting Report

Evaluated 05/15/2024

CooperPetagna
Cooper Petagna National Recruiting Analyst

Two-way high school playmaker who displays excellent athleticism at multiple positions in a 3-4 defense. Shows the ability to play in an on- or off-ball role in an odd front. Possesses the requisite size and growth potential to add additional weight to his frame. Quick-twitch explosive athlete who shows the ability to win with quickness, burst, and power off the edge. Outstanding play speed with very little wasted motion. Plays as fast as he processes. Shows the ability to stack and shed to defeat blocks with violence in the box. Downhill 'backer who displays the speed and athleticism to play sideline to sideline. Limited context in pass coverage but based on athletic evidence, doesn't appear to be a concern. Heady football player with ready-to-play frame at the collegiate level. Value the on- and off-ball versatility. Projects as a 3-4 off-ball linebacker at the next level who can deploy as a situational pass rusher. Immense long-term upside with early-round potential.
