Combine Coach's Overall Comments:
A technical player who is good in possession. He never really made plays in the final third, either a penetrating pass or being in a spot to finish. At the next level, he must
improve his defending, both his ability to read plays as well as winning tackles. He can also open up his passing, look for long diagonals on switches more often
