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.
