Excerpt from 2012 AVSR Global report:

“Long, light and swift. … Can play high and rangy. … A veteran player ready to be a freshman starter at MB or RH in mid-Division I. … Executes cleanly in a fast offense. Swings well off one foot and covers a lot of space quickly on slide plays. … Greatest need is more strength.”
