History: Four-star recruit from Bellevue, WA. Won 2 3A State Championships at Eastside Catholic, catching 138 passes for 2,483 yards and 15 TDs in his career. Also played basketball in High School. Father was the former strength and conditioning coach at Washington.
Strengths: Good athlete. Can stretch it vertically. Movement ability is a plus. Hands are big and strong. Mismatch specialist, who can overpower DBs or run by LBs. Stronger than his frame would suggest. Impressive body control and ball skills, especially given his height. Great RAC ability. Lower center of gravity, hard for smaller DBs to bring down. Fights for extra yards
Weaknesses: Lacks ideal length. Not an overly special athlete by any means. Will get overpowered blocking in-line. Might be viewed by some as just a rotational player you flex out into the slot. Not experienced with guys in his face at the LOS. Hips are a little tight. Injury history will need to be vetted.
Overview: An athletic Y Tight End that can stretch the seam and cause mismatches in the passing game. He lacks the size and blocking ability to be counted on as true in-line blocker at this time. Expect him to be a rotational player, who could eventually groom into a productive player.
