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."
