What Scouts Say: "Steady four-year career ... Wonderful range of passing with his left foot, but he was nervous about our strikers because of his lack of pace ... Does he have height and pace at next level? ... Pretty average ... Solid, reads game well, not sure he has pace to play at the back at the next level but he's pretty good in the air ... Vocal defender, a good communicator and organizer ... Saw some time with the U-20 New Zealand national team and also with U-17s."
