Notes: "prototypical pocket passer with ideal height" ... "can play both from under center and out of the shotgun" ... "Stands tall and sees the field well" ... "fairly accurate" ... "has good foot speed given his size" ... "Does not always set his feet, plant and derive the power he is capable of as he will fall back while delivering and not drive the throw off his back foot" ... "has the measurables you want to see and upside to develop physically"

Quotables:"Coach London's doing wonders there. It's really an honor to call myself a Cavalier."

"When a team cares for one another off the field, it creates a mentality on the field. The players are feeding off of each other's energy and that's translating to elevated play and wins. There's quite a bit of buzz surrounding UVa right now. It's exciting."

"I definitely improved my footwork and my arm strength this year. I felt like I was more confident and accurate with my deep ball."
