6'4" / 221 lbs / 4.6 Video: [Rivals]

Rankings:
- ESPN:  3* / 77 Rating / #67 DE

- Scout: 3* / #111 DE
- _247: 3* / 83 Rating

Other Offers: Boston College, Bucknell, Duke, Liberty, Maryland, Monmouth, Ohio

Notes:  He's got good size and athleticism and the ability to be explosive. That's exactly what you want from a potential defensive end. Couple this with his ability to actually use his hands when defending, and the fact that he can both engage and separate from another blocker, and you've got a pretty good DE in front of you. He can keep solid pad level and hold his ground. He suffered through injury during most of his junior season, which hopefully won't affect him going into next year. He was a D-I first team all-state selection this year.

Quotables

"I was pretty sure from the start of the process that UVa was the school that I wanted to attend. To have my recruitment wrap up like this is a great feeling."
