Weight: 215 lbs.
School: Southeastern High School in Detroit, MI
Notes: Holds offers from Howard, Michigan, and Toledo . . . Attends Southeastern High School, alma mater of 2010 Michigan targets Johnathon Hankins (Ohio State) and William Gholston (Michigan State) . . . As a junior, had 103 tackles, 6 sacks, and 3 interceptions . . . Also scored 8 touchdowns on offense as a running back and wide receiver . . . 3-star prospect and #36 outside linebacker to Scout.com . . . Wears #9 . . .
Strengths: Good size with plenty of room to add muscle mass . . . Plays downhill when opportunity arises . . . Careless with his body . . . High-effort player . . . Doesn’t go down easily with the ball . . . Seems to enjoy chasing plays down from behind . . . Good speed . . . Looks more agile and athletic than the highly recruited Gholston on film . . . Attacks blockers with leverage rather than trying to dance around them
Weaknesses: Not a fluid athlete . . . Lacks some agility in open space . . . Production is a bit questionable, since stats were amassed with two high FBS teammates alongside him in the front seven
Projection: He looks like a good weakside linebacker prospect. He could also project to tight end or rush linebacker, but I’d start him off at WILL. The biggest thing he seems to be lacking is bulk, but he could probably play in his second year.
Reminds me of: former Michigan S/LB (and current Temple Owl) Brandon Smith.
