Scouting Report on Nick Waisome

by Barry Every - 06/03/2010
  • SpeedBlue Chip
  • SizeDivision I Player
  • StrengthDivision I Player
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • Ball SkillsDivision I Player
On the Hoof: Waisome has a very narrow waist, wide shoulders and almost no body fat. He does have ideal arm length for a corner. Has the lower body of a sprinter. He is physically similar to Baylor signee Tyler Stephenson.
Needs Improvement: Would like to see him add about 10 pounds of muscle mass, which would allow him to become a more physical tackler. He has good hands but has shown a tendency to allow the ball to get to his body.
Most Impressive: Has excellent change-of-direction skills and very good speed. Waisome also does a nice job of coming out of his breaks to make plays on the ball. He is very competitive, and has the athleticism to be a punt returner.
Conclusion: Most likely will redshirt as he gains size and strength. He should excel on special teams as a return man or kick-coverage guy. Look for him to be a solid two-year starter or better.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
