Two-year starter that was an All-Conference selection after his senior season. Previously used at defensive tackle and on special teams. Blind-side protector for a left handed quarterback.

Powerful lineman with a great upside to his game. Quick off the snap and setting in pass Protection with the ability to immediately get out and block linebackers on the second level. Effective trap blocking and adjusts well taking out defenders. Plays with knee bend, a wide base and displays the ability to shuffle and slide his feet. Terrific blocking range and lateral agility. moves well in space and dominant once engaged with opponents. Stays square, strong in his upper body and works his hands throughout the play. Easily controls defenders or turns them out of the play completely. Bends at the waist or ducks his head which hurts his balance and does not always finish-off blocks. To this point, a better pass blocker than run blocker. May just be scratching the surface of his football skills. If he learns to use his size and natural abilities on every snap, a great player for the future. Early First
