On the Hoof: He is very well-proportioned with thick legs and powerbase. Could tone up just a tad, but he is not overweight by any means. He looks like a young, giant defensive tackle.
Needs Improvement: He needs to hit the weight room, get stronger and improve his pad level at the point of attack.
Most Impressive: He has the footwork of much smaller linebacker. He is athletic enough to change directions and chase down ball carriers from behind.
Conclusion: Playing at the high level of competition that he will see at Hargrave Military will surely improve his chances of making an impact as a true freshman.
