What Scouts Say: "Big strong athletic, technical kid ... Dangerous running ... Can play the withdrawn position and can play facing the goal ... He's tall, athletic, pretty fast and technical for his size ... In sophomore year led team to NCAA tournament and some team may have drafted him out of college based on that ... But was less effective as a junior and senior ... When his mindset is in the right place and he's motivated, he was one of the better players ... For whatever reason the last couple of years his level has dropped off ... Not sure if he's anything more than supplemental pick."
