Combine Coach's Overall Comments:
 

Ibrahim did well to improve toward the end of the Combine.  He struggled in the early going and this can be attributed to his biggest problem:  he needs to play more soccer.  His touch on the ball and awareness of the game showed he has to play more to get cleaner technically with the ball and understand where his best position is on the field.  Obviously, he has great strength and incredible speed, but these talents are only useful if he can incorporate the ball and become a smarter soccer player.  There is also a fitness level for soccer that can only be achieved by playing more.  When the game got hard, he would take too many touches and complicate the game instead of getting rid of the ball quickly and finding another area to get the ball back.  His speed is a huge value, but there has be more soccer ability.
