Graduate Student from Damascus High School in Maryland. He lettered in Football and Track & Field in high school, where he played both ways as a DB/RB amassing 1,200 yds in his Junior season. Thick, stocky build with adequate height, weight, and sufficient length. He displays solid AA, plays with solid acceleration, lateral quickness, adequate COD, and foot speed. Good vision, patience on counters and gap concepts with pulling blockers leading the way. Accelerates well through the hole, timing his burst along with the kick out block and makes good decisions based on the OL’s leverage at the POA. Good reducing his body surface area to squeeze through small gaps at the LOS. Solid in space, displays average contact balance at his size, he is capable of running through arm tackles when he is at full speed. Adequate asset in the passing game as a receiver, understands how to get open vs ILB’s as a checkdown option by winning at the stem with superior AA. Adequate hands, he is susceptible to drops due to looking upfield too early and cannot be trusted in contested catch situations due to his frame. Good in pass pro, he displays good mental processing and vision balance by picking up the most dangerous blitzer and edge player looping on twist’s with consistency. He does so by scanning the backfield, keeping distance between him and the OL, and staying square at the POA with good leverage to ensure he keeps his QB clean. Effective accuracy on chip blocks when vacating the backfield into a route. Marginal reading zone concepts with early penetration from the defensive front, very indecisive when he needs to make a quick decision due to a DL being in the backfield, and fails to get north and south with urgency. Below-average ball security, he is susceptible to fumbles when a defender can get a hat or punch on the ball because of the way he pumps his arms while carrying the ball.
RB in a gap scheme. Special teams contributor as a returner and gunner in coverage.
TD Ayo-Durojaiye could benefit from his OL reducing their splits. I believe he is not effective in zone concepts because he is not given a fair chance with the OL being set up to lose. He is effective on IZ when there is a clear picture and read in front of him.
