Evaluation: 

Wore No.2 at HUB Football CAMP on 5/23/21. Very quick in/out of his cuts… crafty route runner able to create separation in the short-to-intermediate parts of the field; understands angles. Best attribute is elusiveness in open field; YAC. Known to be a fast learner. Doesn’t have blazing speed; more of a strider… crafty route runner who understands how to create separation in the short-to-intermediate past of the field. Needs to get stronger; weighed in six pounds lighter than last seen one year ago. Added bulk will help him versus press coverage. Drops have been an issue at times. More quick than fast; lacks elite size/speed/strength. Has experience returning kicks and serving as gunner on punt unit, which would make him an extremely valuable commodity in the CFL, contributing on special teams and slotback role.

Background:

Began his collegiate career at Robert Morris (NEC ROY). Transferred to UConn after finding out that his mom was terminally ill. Led the Huskies in receiving as a senior. Currently training in Colorado six days a week; working on weights, routes and nutrition.
