Notes: "plays bigger than his listed size" ... "good speed and finds holes in the defense" ... "will flash some sudden and explosive change-of-direction as both a route runner and after the catch that excites you" ... "Plucks with ease and has quick hands" ... "best routes are the post and the post corner" ... "not always as fluid as you would like"


"[UVA] did a tremendous job this year. They've got a whole bunch of freshmen and sophomores that really stepped up their game. "

"A part of the reason why I committed to Virginia was because of my relationship with the coaches. He just told me to be ready to compete when I get there."

"Wherever UVa needs me, is where I'll play. I don't mind either side of the ball at the next level."
