Combine Coach's Overall Comments
His technical foundation is good. Could improve on his range of passing. Tactically he is fairly solid. Must be more commanding in the back. Physically, he needs to be stronger, quicker and more agile. A solid combine performance. Could benefit from games at the PDL level.
