What Scouts Say: "Central defender and three-time Defender of the Year in his conference ... Reads game unbelievably well ... For the last year or so he has had ankle problem ... Two-footed ... Steps into the ball well ... Weakness is his first couple of steps ... Typical English central defender ala John Terry. Simple, old school and very good in the air ... Strength is his overall command of the game ... He can play at MLS level ... One downfall is speed over 10 yards, but he rarely gets beat for pace ... Plays like a Michael Parkhurst or Chris Wingert ... Defensive center mid is another option for him in MLS. Played there sometimes for Hofstra ... Played 2011 season on a bad ankle and after intensive therapy in the summer, he's getting better and better ... Needs to get fitter ... Discovered among semi-pros in English lower divisions ... Did not come through the youth system of a particular team ... A leader and a guy who stands out."
