What you should know:
- Shows great patience to read plays as they develop, then sudden burst to close once he makes his read—and VERY violent finisher upon arrival.
- High marks for special teams play. Even if he won’t see the field early as a regular defensive player, can contribute in kick coverage and as a return blocker.
- Was UVA’s first in-state 2019 commitment, announcing in May that he’d become a Cavalier.
