SCOUTS SAY: "Strong, physical center back with good intangibles … Unbelievable leader who makes his team go both on and off the field … Has a mean streak when he gets on the field … He can distribute pretty well with some range from the back … He's good in the air and good when the ball's in front of him, but it's balls over the top and through-balls that he struggles on … Watching him at the College Cup, I felt bad because he didn't do a thing right; I've never seen him play like that. But he had an ankle injury he was dealing with late in the season … He's smart and reads the game well, but he's slow and teams had some success getting by him."
