What The Experts Say

247Sports’ Brian Dohn (National Recruiting Analyst): “Long, big-bodied receiver with ability to play at 225 pounds. Strong and physical. Gets off line quickly and into routes well. Flashes out of breaks. Locates ball well. Knows how to use size against smaller defenders. Shows burst after catch. Quick to pierce defense and gets to top speed in a few steps. Creates mismatches. Big hands. Uses size to beat jams. Can be a red-zone threat. Has to continue to work on catching ball away from body. Sometimes fights the ball and allows it inside. Consistency needed with high-pointing passes. Multi-year starter at Top 20 program.”
