6’2/3 230lbs 5-star LB out of Miami, goes to 8A school Columbus

Dual sport athlete that plays both Football & Basketball

Finished his Sophomore year with 53tcks 5PBU’s 2 sacks 2TFL’s 2FF’s & 1INT

Big physically imposing LB with college level frame already. Plays Sam Backer & is used an Edge rusher but also does a very good job dropping back in coverage zones & Defending RB’s in the flats. Can play as a traditional 4-3 Sam LB or as an 3-4 Jack Rusher. Has 4.6 speed according to Ivins, but plays with good short area burst & explosiveness in pursuit in the backfield.




Visited Miami last year in November, then came back in January, April & just recently back in June for our 7v7 tournament. Top priority prospect for Miami in the 24 class & is being heavily pursued by our staff, Mario, Coach Strong, Coach Sabbath etc are in communication with him regularly. He was even offered & being recruited by Kevin Smith when he was at Ole Miss, so there’s familiarity with several coaches on our staff.

He’s also visited Bama, TAMU, UGA, Michigan, UF & others this offseason & will be visiting Louisville next week.

Is the current #1 ranked LB for the 2024 class, although we’ll have to see if he drops when they update the 24 class rankings because he’s only a 5-star on Rivals, 247 & ESPN have him as a 4-star. Either way, he’s an ELITE talent that will be highly sought after by every major program in the country.


Offers:
Miami, Bama, Oklahoma, TAMU, USC, UGA, LSU, Ole Miss, Tenn, Penn ST, Michigan, Mich ST, UF, FSU, LVille, NC ST & South Carolina


Any relation to Wayne Capers who played at South Miami hs and later UKansas and some years in NFL? This was back late 1970s, early 1980s.
