247Sport Scouting Report

A highly productive pass rusher who not only wins with technique but also one of the best engines in the class of 2023. Not the greatest point of attack player but never mind because he’s shooting into the backfield with a game plan and is extremely effective at just putting pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Total absurd 29.5 sacks as a junior in Miami-Dade County. This was followed by arguably the best performance of his young career as he collected three sacks against national powerhouse IMG Academy in the season opener. The ability to plant, redirect, and hop outside of the hashes is extremely rare for someone his age given his fast reading and reacting skills. Was primarily used as an edge player for much of his pre-season career, but has also gotten some inside glimpses and has shown he can make a difference in the middle with his heavy hands and overall physical demeanor. The lack of verified data points isn’t ideal, but given what he’s put on tape over the years, no real reason to question his ability to make a difference at the Power Five level. Will likely take time to adjust to the pace and demands of big college football, but could carve out a role as a next-level situational rusher early on before finally breaking in as a regular for his school selection. Tweener readings aren’t for everyone, but the ability to consistently flush out bags is extremely valuable at a time when everyone wants to air them out.
