Career Summary

COACHES' BREAKDOWN: "Underrated, great left foot, drives forward from the back. Athletic, but I question if his skills translate to a higher level ... All of the guys at W&M were decent players when we played them. No one outstsanding. Solid, steady plays ... I question whether good enough to play at next level.... Tremendous left foot. Great ball striker, great service. Attacking and can get back and forth. Can score in the air or the ground. Good size, but probably doesn't have strength and speed for MLS right now. Good mentality, willing to learn and work on his game. Good tackler, and he likes defending. Not great 1-v-1. He's very, very slim."
