Scouting Report
An intense, high-energy defender with a knack for big plays. Buzzes around the ball and looks for big hits and pass break-ups. Uses his above-average athleticism and leaping ability to play bigger than his size and bust up plays. Loves to hit, and is an excellent run-stopper for a defensive back. Undersized and lacks ideal long speed for pure coverage duties, and too often tries to compensate with over-aggressiveness. Takes far too many unnecessary penalties, and needs to significantly rein in his game and overall approach.
Long Range Potential: High-energy rotational safety.
