What you should know:

  • Kid is a mauler. Level of competition isn’t the same in Germany as elite high school leagues in the U.S., so tough to tell exactly how much will translate. But while the ability to knock a guy to the ground may be different, the desire to do so—on EVERY play—can be constant.
  • Al Soufi’s quarterback from Paderborn (Luke Wentz) is a fellow member of the 2019 class.
  • Visited UVA as part of an American tour of elite European prospects. Picked up an offer from Florida on the same tour.
