Scouting Report on Jace Amaro

by Barry Every - 10/13/2010
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeBlue Chip
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityDivision I Player
  • Ball SkillsBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Very long athlete with the build of a small power forward.
Needs Improvement: He has the ability to be a great blocker but on occasion goes through the motions. Amaro will need to add upper-body size.
Most Impressive: Has excellent height, soft hands and good speed. Amaro has the frame to become an every-down tight end who can line up at any receiver position.
Conclusion: He is one of the top tight ends in the country. Look for him to play early, especially on special teams, as he works his way into the two-deep on offense.

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
