What Scouts Say: "Mobile attacking player who can cover a lot of ground ... Good player, decent speed, Futsal-type feet and works hard ... A good, solid college soccer player ... Technically solid and athletically OK. Doesn't have that next-level explosiveness ... He's a good soccer player, but he's not a blazer ... Can separate and pass. Also knows how to close in, tackle and defend ... Pretty good at a lot of things ... He won't run by anybody, but he'll find good spots to run in and combine ... Played a couple of different roles wide or central. He was a forward, who slipped into a free-roaming attacking midfield position. Also used as a winger in the 4-3-3 ... Has more midfield qualities than striker qualities ... If he had a shot in MLS, it may have to be at wide midfielder, but he may not be creative enough for the outside ... He may be better as a wide midfielder in a 4-4-2 than as a winger in a 4-3-3 ... In a 4-3-3 he could help a team build out of central midfield as one of three central guys."
