Combine Coach's Overall Comments
Austin showed good qualities as a forward but had a frustrating combine with finishing chances. He will shoot with either foot, but much stronger with the right. Heneeds to work on composure in finishing, at times, a little indecisive. He likes to come back to receive the ball. Must take better care of it in midfield as some giveaways. Can work on turning players. Chases, works and tackles defensively. Very honest player. Strong prospect.
