Scouting Report on Austin Hinder

How we scouted: Film footage, In-person visits, Game setting, Campby Barry Every - 09/21/2009
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeDivision I Player
  • StrengthDivision I Player
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • VelocityDivision I Player
On the Hoof: Has excellent height with wide shoulders and a lean build. He is built a little bit like Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson.
Needs Improvement: Has a tendency to over grip the ball, causing it to come out of his hand with wobble. Also needs to add muscle mass and strength, which will improve the velocity on all of his passes.
Most Impressive: Hinder has uncanny accuracy throwing the ball on the run, and he puts excellent touch and air under his fade passes. He also brings to the table a very intelligent insight into the game of football.
Conclusion: A definite redshirt candidate that has the potential to put up huge numbers as a three-year starter. Hinder has leadership qualities and a high football IQ, so expect him to continue to get better and better.
