What Scouts Say: "Deep-lying holding midfielder, a true No. 6 … He reads the game well and is a very smart player … Technically skilled and a good passer … Good feet, good at switching the point of attack … Not sure he's quick enough to stay with guys at the professional level … I wouldn't rule him out because he can do things that other players can't."
