Scout Eval: This guy has a knack for making big plays. He has great coverage skills and is a great asset against the spread offense. Against the run he explodes to the ball and will initiate the contact on the ball carrier on his terms. He is extremely athletic and his body will only be more impressive once he dedicates himself to football full-time in college. Because of his explosion and speed he is also effect in blitz based schemes.
