What Scouts Say: "Creative player with excellent vision … He sees things a little bit differently from the average player, so he isn't afraid to try difficult things, and when they come off, it's pretty unique and special … Where he hurts you is that he can put the final pass in and do it accurately Very comfortable with both feet and excels at crossing the ball, and running at people … He could play central midfield in a three-man midfield or in a two-man midfield with a really good athlete behind him, but I think he projects as a wide player at the next level … I'm not sure he's tough enough to make an impact in MLS … Some consider him a defensive liability, but he doesn't pull out of tackles … His biggest challenges are his size and his ability to withstand the physicality of the professional game."
