What Scouts Say: "Best position is probably right wing at the next level ... Very athletic, good size and good physical attirbutes .. He's looking to run at guys to get at end line and send balls into the box ... Crosses are his strength ... He receives the ball and accelerates rapidly to top speed and that's why he gets service off. That's his strength ... He can get to the end line and cut things back ... Dynamic. Once his legs get going he's difficult to stop ... Finishing and coming inside is something he needs to work on ... As well as getting more goals out of his game ... Doesn't have the speed and athleticsm for the wing ... Has decent feet … Scored for Puerto Rico vs. Spain ... Does he have the right mentality for MLS? For him it's more of the mental side of things. He's temperamental and he'll go missing now and again. He takes a play off every now and then ... Big guy, big shoulders and good acceleration ... Has to improve his defending ... He's also a little erratic ... He's involved in the game when the ball is near him ... Not a good striker of the ball on target ... Serves a great ball in, 1-v-1 and he's got a lot of good stuff but in and around the goal he's not great ... For 1-v-1 service he can be put up against anyone in the country in college soccer ... Lot of talent who perhaps has underachieved in college."
