6’4 235lbs 3/4-star EDGE out of South Houston, goes to 5A school Friendswood
Had a great Junior season with 77tcks 12TFL’s 8sacks 5PBU’s 4FF’s & 1INT
Is a big physically gifted kid with long arm Basketball player wingspan & quick first step as a rusher. Has naturally strong physical frame with a college level physique already. He plays with good speed & is an aggressive tackler. He does a really good job in setting the edge on the backside in run contain & is a quick-twitch versatile rusher with high athletic upside. Plays as a Standup Sam Backer & is more of a scheme fit as a 3-4 OLB/Jack rusher, but has the ability to play as a 4-3 hand in the dirt DE. Also does very well dropping back as LB in his assignment coverages in Zone covering the flats.
Overall high upside explosiveness; reminds me of Tyus Bowser
Texas, USC, Tennessee & Baylor have been recruiting him the most thus far, with Texas & USC being the early the favorites right now. He already has 2 Summer OV’s set up for Texas & USC thus far, but the expectation is that Tenn & Baylor will also get OV’s this Summer as well. Miami will have an uphill battle to break into this recruitment.
