History. Four-star recruit from Philadelphia. Prepped at Neumann Goretti, where he was first team All-Philadelphia in the Catholic League Blue Division, and led his team to an 11-1 record and the state quarterfinals. Originally committed to Temple, before de-committing and reopening his recruitment the summer before his Senior year.
Strengths. Prototypical size, with great length. Heavy hands. Good foot quicknesses for his size, shows the ability to stunt. Feet and hands are in unison when rushing. Really good range. Gets his mitts up into passing lanes. Has a plan, and multiple moves in his arsenal.
Weaknesses. Doesn’t always stay in his assignments. Needs to be more disciplined. Upfield attack leaves holes. Too many missed opportunities to bring down the QB. Only 23 career games, and part of a rotation (although obviously deep).
Overview: One-gap DT who is best fit in a multi scheme attacking defense. He’s a good athlete that combines his strength, and good feet to get up field and make plays in the backfield. If you’re looking for a 2 gaper, he’s probably not your guy. He’s probably going to be the first interior d-linemen off the board, but it’s not a great class. He’s going to be a good starter in the league.
