Committed to: Stanford

Frame: Long. Above-average width across upper body. Tightly-wound, well-proportioned lower half. Plenty of room to add good weight at next level. 

Athleticism: Solid collection of tools. Above-average speed and burst. Shows loose hips and ankles, especially turning from backpedal. Physical, with functional play strength in the box. Good aerial body control. Clear ball skills. 

Instincts: Always finds himself around the ball. Confidently patrols center field. Always reading quarterback’s eyes and guard keys, firing to ball upon diagnosis. Effective tracking ball in air. Solid tackler; arrives low. 

Polish: Good footwork in deep defensive backfield, but could further improve flexibility. Limited experience in one-on-one coverage; tools to add impactful jam. Must get stronger. 

Bottom Line: Slocum’s impressive list of offers suggests he’s poised to make a considerable splash as a senior. Athletic and instinctive, he boasts the traits needed to be a productive, playmaking free safety for an elite Power-5 program. Potential multi-year starter.
