6’5 270lbs 5-star DT from Oklahoma City
Had a terrific Sophomore season finishing with 47tcks 16TFL’s & 9 sacks
Physically gifted freak of nature, kid has an outstanding explosive first step with initial burst at the point of attack. He’s a speed to power rusher that does a good job utilizing swim technique to split blockers & has very good active hands when engaging with lineman to stack & shed while collapsing the pocket. Plays with good leverage against Guards on the interior in the A&B gaps, does a really good job getting depth underneath & inside against OG’s beating them to the punch before they’re able to get their hands on him & anchor.
Extremely disruptive DL that lives in the backfield, is a phenomenal Run Defender & pass rusher.
Versatile he plays as 1-Tech NT, 2T, 3T & Inside-4T & 5T DE, but could also play as an outside C & D gap Strongside DE
Has visited Tennessee, Mich ST, Notre Dame, TAMU, Bama, UGA, Michigan, UF, Kentucky South Carolina, LSU & several others throughout the Spring & Summer, but obviously being a Del City kid (East side OKC) Oklahoma has been seen as the early favorites in his recruitment. However, given that he is the #2 composite ranked DT thus far in the 24 class he will be highly sought after by every major program & is kid that will command big time NIL offers on the market.
The IMG connection has lead to Miami throwing our hat in the ring, so we’ll see how this one goes, but expect a high profile recruiting War for a potential future NFL caliber talent.
DT, WR and QB are the main priorities.Give him the necessary deal ala Okunlola. On top of our extreme dire need for DTs, he is elite and at a school that we now have a strong presence in. He was the best player on the field in the 1 IMG game I watched early in the season.
