History: Three-star recruit out of Arizona. His father Muhammad played at Oregon and played five years in the NFL. His uncle, Damon Mayes, played at Missouri and in the NFL as well.

Strengths: Excellent length, long and rangy kid. Sprinter, in both High School and at Colorado. Great leaper, that times the ball great. Breaks well on the ball. Good kid, who has worked as a referee in flag football games and served meals to underprivileged in the community.
Weaknesses: Has some issues in off man. Doesn’t hold up as well with shifty receivers. Not as aggressive in run support, as his size may suggest. Needs to become a better tackler, especially in space.
Overview: Oliver is your typical bump and run press corner. He has the long arms to disrupt receivers at the LOS. He needs to work on his off coverage, and become more aggressive in the run game.
