WHAT COACHES SAY: "He's a handful. Finds goals. Doesn't look the part but he runs off the ball, holds ball up, shoots from acute angles ... He creates his own chances ... Gets one step and he'll finish ... Coaches love him because of ability to score goals ... He's got a little more pace than a Wondo. More dynamic with quickness ... Not fast but can move a little bit ... He's a born goal-scorer. One of those rare players. Been scoring consistently his whole life ... Great in and around the box ... Powerful player. Makes excellent runs and has a terrific shooting ability with either foot and his head ... Terrific balance and explosiveness in the box to create shots ... He's got good speed, not blazing speed. Box guy ... Explosive in first 5-10 yards. Not a blazer that's going to race in behind ... Not a sprinter toward goal .. Can play back to goal. Can hold up ball and bring guys into game ... Has blossomed last two years. First two years not a lot there ... I really like the kid. He's got a good body on him. Good size. Good feet. He scores goals, his movements are good. Can he do it at next level? That's always the question."
