Converted midfielder who ended up playing fullback for the final two years of his college eligibility.
What Scouts Say: "Bubble guy at best... not athletic ... nice right foot, reads game pretty well .. speed of game prettygood... good 2nd or 3rd round pick ... can only play in one position at right back but more of an attacking right back ... he combines well out of the back ... he links up well with midfielders and ofrwards and he looks to get forward ... looks to get balls into the ofrwards, into good attacking areas ... not great athletic pace ... but I think good enough ... Intaingbles for him is that he wasn't one of those highly recruited giuys going into UNC but seemed to find way onto field and wound up being captain ... you see guys like this finding place in MLS ... skillfull enough ... he may have some pieces that I don' t know whether first round draft pick ... he coudl stick around ... not sure what his out and out pace but backline hasn't conceded a lot of goals ... poor man's Chuerndolo very good example ... very similar."
