What Scouts Say: "Big, athletic kid and pretty good shot-stopper ... Prototypical big ‘keeper with good range through his size ... He's tough to get around and he gets to balls in the air ... Great shot-stopper, gets to many balls average goalkeepers don’t get ... Good on crosses, commands the box well, very athletic ... He gets down well enough to low balls ... Capable, athletic and quick enough … His feet are pretty good, not great ... Struggles when he has to make decisions coming off his line ... Decent college goalkeeper ... Positionally he's ok and makes up for it with size ... Needs to improve in consistency of distribution to be an effective 'keeper in MLS and also improve his footwork on the ball ... Not super comfortable with the ball at his feet ... Has to work on his focus for 90 minutes when it comes to his shot-stopping ... He has the potential in the right environment to be an MLS goalkeeper."
