6’2 170lbs 3-star CB out of Coral Springs, he goes to 3A Chaminade Madonna
He was originally at Boca Raton, then Stoneman Douglas & now will finish HS at Nade.
Finished his Junior season last year with 17tcks 13PBU’s & 4INT’s.
He’s a long armed raw athletic Corner with good ball skills.
@1:00 he does a really good job playing the Boundary in Press man coverage, he comes out of his stance with good foot spacing & immediately flips his hips while reading the WR, gets into phase & does a great job walling off the WR using the sideline as the extra defender & tracking the ball down while getting his head around to get the PBU.
@1:18 does a another really nice job reading his man on outside release vs leverage, with skating feet out of his stance & staying patience & not overstepping against initial route fakes, he never takes his eyes off the WR to defend against the end zone fade route, he does good face-guarding & getting in between the WR & the ball playing through the hands of the WR. The only thing he didn’t do was get his head around, but otherwise played textbook coverage to get the PBU.
@3:00 what he shows repeatedly on his tape is the ability to quickly read & react to the WR, especially in press man coverage vs outside release, he always does a good job with route recognition & immediately flipping his hips to get out vs the WR’s breaks. His transitional footwork into phase is very good for a first time CB & most importantly he ets his head around & finds the ball.
He’s a converted WR with ideal arm length & good ball skills, plus quick transitional footwork in press man & good natural instincts. He’s a raw tall bodied corner, but has good upside. He’s not a track star blazer, but has good football speed, is quicker than fast, projects to be a nice Boundary CB at the next level.
Comes from good stock, Dad played at Cincinnati & Uncle played at Michigan & in the NFL.
Is an under the radar prospect that’s been blowing up with offers lately, UGA recently offered & they have the early lead on him as of now because recently hired DB coach Fran Brown was recruiting him pretty heavy at Rutgers & has since offered him at UGA.
@DMoney first posted on him in this thread https://www.canesinsight.com/threads/my-early-tri-county-top-40.176317/post-5769476
He’s a kid that Miami hasn’t offered yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we did. It may be a situation where he’s high on UGA now, but towards the end of the year they may not have room in their class, so just put feelers out to gauge interest & keep tabs on him.
Holds offers from UGA, Arkansas, Kentucky, Penn ST, Boston College, Indiana, Iowa ST, Rutgers, Maryland, Duke, Wake Forest, UCF, USF, FAU & Temple
