Combine Coach's Overall Comments
Gio registered and is evaluated here as a defender, but I believe with his skill set, he can play at the professional level as a midfielder as well. Gio can market his versatility to play as a wide midfielder or defender. He has PDL experience, which he can easily perform at again, but could also be ready for the jump to USL or NASL at this time.
