Versatile left-footed player who can play in midfield but could be an intriguing selection at left back.
What Scouts Say: "Young professional. Mature player, really works harder than then next guy. Good attitude ... Definitely a left defender in MLS ... Natural left-footed player, can serve a great ball and a great left-footed cross ... Takes all set pieces ... Has good size, he's athletic and has great pace ... He's not real dynamic but gets himself around and he's pretty clever ... Steady on the ball and good one-on-one attacking player ... Played a lot of midfield for Monmouth and they've moved him around in 2012 (central mid, left mid, forward and left back) ... Attack-minded with good ideas. Can join the attack and serve the ball in from deep-lying areas into box ... 1-v-1 defending is not great but he hasn't had to focus on defending. If he can clean that up and become a stronger defender, he can be very good ... In midfield keeps things ticking side-to-side ... Box-to-box midfielder with great technique ... Shoots well from distance ... Not super-fast but gets it done. Deceptive speed and crafty on the ball ... Looks effortless in his movements ... Can potentially play at left midfield and pinch in. He's not an out-and-out wide guy."
College (Monmouth): Four-time All-NEC player ... Netted three goals, all game-winners, in his senior season to go with a team-high six assists ...
