Former 4 star quarterback from the 2018 recruiting class. Tall, long, lanky player in the mold of a classic pocket passer. Shows clean mechanics and a consistent base. Whips elbow to generate necessary throwing velocity when needed. Longer release as a passer that feels partially due to how lanky he is. Looks comfortable scanning the fields and progressing through reads. Does a good job giving his teammates an opportunity to makes plays, but middling at best supporting cast may have held him back at times. Overall ball placement is inconsistent despite mechanics. Must improve accuracy to take the next step as a prospect. Will attempt to buy time when pocket is collapsing around him, but is a below average athlete with underwhelming mobility. Delayed start to college career after spending time on a 21-month missionary trip to Brazil post high school. Diagnosed with melanoma in high school and underwent successful surgery.
