Combine Coach's Overall Comments:
He has very good tools for a professional outside back. He stays tuned in, has clean feet and makes good decisions on the ball. He can easily handle the faster speed of play and takes advantage by overlapping frequently. His defending was solid. He used his body well, read plays and cut out passes, and tackled hard. Athletically, he showed enough pace to handle the attacking players. He has a very positive attitude and mentality.
