What Scouts Say: "Good, solid player ... He can play either right-sided or left-sided. Flank player for sure. Up and down the flank ... Likes to take players on 1-v-1 ... Good pace, speedy player and good on the ball. Can be dangerous going at a guy and dangerous combining coming back inside ... Doesn't cross the ball particularly well and he's not getting to the end line often, but he's one of those players who can cut inside and combine off other players ... Little on the lightweight side and skinny ... Is he dynamic enough for MLS?"
