Scouting Report
Technical (1 - 5: 5=strongest)
Category Score Comments
Dribbling 3 When he had the time, he did well. But got ball caught at his feet when trying to do too much
Passing 3 Needs better accuracy. Have a purpose for every ball.
1st Touch 3 Decent, but not natural, had to look down to deal with
Crossing NA  
Finishing NA  
Heading 3 Great athlete. Size contributed to out-jumping opponent as a defensive mid. Could have gotten forward more for crosses

Tactical (1 - 5: 5=strongest)
Category Score Comments
Decision Making 3 Need to know, prior to receiving the ball, what are the options
Communication 2 Quiet. Could be more verbal, especially at his position.
Executes Under Pressure 2 Needs that concentration on final passes
Movement Off Ball 3 Played non-reactionary, rather than reading the play.
Small-Sided Game 3 Played both ends, but would have liked to have seen more risk taking, getting in scoring positions.
Full-Field Game 3 Played a steady, non-flashy role. Speed of play needs to improve for pro game.

Physical Ability (1 - 5: 5=strongest)
Category Score Comments
Strength 4 Great physical specimen. A bit uptight at times, though.
Speed 3 Showed ability to attack space, but final ball needs work
Quickness 3 When he had time to go forward at attack space, he did ok
Endurance 3 Was a middle 1/3 player. I think more attention could be paid to being an end to end player.
Agility 3 For his size, moved well.

Combine Coach's Overall Comments
Although he liked the CMF position, I asked him to try CB because of his athleticism and simple distribution, but not immediately comfortable. Very good in the air. Speed of play has to improve for the next level, and early decision making. Also, as a CMF, knowing the pressure around you before getting the ball. Preciseness of final ball needs improvement which comes with being comfortable on the ball. Play more "get it and give it".
