Player Summary:

A one year starter after transferring from Boise State after being a multi-year starter, playing primarily in an air raid and quick game scheme. Has a short yet muscular and well-built body that can withstand hits, paired with a solid AA, quick and active feet, solid play strength and a strong competitive and mental toughness. Has lined up in various ways, under center and shotgun formations while used in RPO and quick game schemes, showcasing his ability to fit into any scheme. Is able to make read progressions in a quick and timely manner and make accurate reads. Has good pocket awareness and is able to make throws while in a collapsing pocket as well as run out of the pocket to extend plays. He is always looking downfield even if the pocket is collapsing or the play is either busted or ended. Is able to adapt his throwing arm angle and motion to account for his position and route.

An inconsistent passer, especially with his accuracy, he tends to not set his feet when he throws. Does not possess top end arm strength as he struggles driving the ball with his throws, especially in tight spaces, and struggles pushing the ball downfield. Passes tend to sail over or are underthrown, making receivers have to adjust. Looks like he has to put in extra effort in his throws even for screens and short yardage. He also suffered a shoulder injury in his throwing arm that he is still healing from at the time of this report, and will have questions on his throwing ability once he is fully healed.

Scheme Fit:

Best if used in an offense that can utilize his quick game ability with his AA, speed and ability to make the quick reads and passes to sustain this type of offense.

Power Statement:

A competitive and mentally tough quarterback who thrives in quick game and short gain offenses and has the intelligence and read progressions to make the throws needed but overall has many inconsistencies and lack of arm strength that makes him a developmental quarterback as of right now.
