Slight frame. Hands are inconsistent. Comes out of his breaks a bit stiff. Can struggle at times against longer corners coming off the line. Doesn’t attack the ball in the air consistently.  Broke his collarbone in 2012 [missed 2 games]. Doesn’t have the long speed – can be run down.

Overall
A day 2 prospect – can thrive both in the slot where he can use his size and speed  to create mismatches and is big, fast, strong enough on the outside to take the top off a defense. Needs to work on coming out of his breaks and improve his hands.

Overall:  5.92
