What Scouts Say: "He's a special kind of kid who can do some things that no one else on the field will be able to do … He's big, strong, powerful and then has legitimate track-athlete type of speed - he runs a 4.4 40-yard dash - for a guy that's 200 pounds … He has the build you would look for in a No. 9, plus pace, and he has a high comfort level with the ball … Where he struggles is his understanding of his team and tactics … He's sometimes more comfortable 1 v. 3 than 3 v. 1 … He jumps well and has good size but does not have great timing… Has great talent to bang and hold the ball up and also run in behind defenses, but he can be frustrating."
