Redshirt senior from Cincinnati, Ohio. Originally committed to Virginia as the #3 DT recruit in 2019 (247Sports), playing his first two seasons, and then transferring to Cincinnati. He is listed on Bruce Feldman’s 2023 Freaks List because he has squatted 700 lbs, deadlift 655 lbs, had 31 reps of 225, and clocked 18.6 MPH in his sprint. Marginal height, with adequate weight, good arm length, and very good AA. Good lateral quickness, paired with solid initial quickness, good COD, and adequate balance. Uses good efficient footwork to get out of 3 and 4 pt stances, good initial get off and length allows him to initiate contact with the OL. Good vs the run because he has a good understanding of what his assignment is keeping gap integrity. He wins at the POA by utilizing a strong strike to the opponent’s armpit, with good length and elite play strength he displaces interior OL creating a mucked up backfield. Very good hand dexterity paired with good timing allows him to shed blockers making tackles close to the LOS. He processes reach blocks well using solid lateral quickness and elite strength to ensure the OL does not execute their block. Solid plan as a pass rusher, he knows what his strengths are primarily by going to a power rush. He creates penetration up the middle by pushing the C/OG into the pocket with good leverage, length, and a very good active lower base forcing the OL into their anchor. Solid as a crasher in twist game, takes a solid path using his size and strength to occupy the OL for the looping DE. Adequate clearing himself with his hands after creating penetration, inactive hands after initially winning leaves potential sacks on the table. Marginal processing gap scheme plays with pulling OL, his first reaction is to jump and match the OL who is replacing the puller vacating his gap for a big running lane for pullers and the ball carrier.
1-4 tech in 2 gap 4-3
