Strengths

Scholar­-athlete who brings mental sharpness from classroom onto the field. Instinctive, efficient center. Will climb up to second level rather than linger on secure blocks that are already in the bag. Plays with proper base and mirrors inside linebacker movement on his way up to them on run plays. Quick, darting eyes to find incoming traffic when he senses twists. Plays with functional change of direction ability. Brings feet up under his hips to secure his block and can shuffle them into position while on the move to get defenders pinned. Shows surprising anchor for his size when under duress against bull­ rush. Flat-back posture in pass sets.

Weaknesses

Undersized for the position. May not have much room for additional mass on his frame. Nose tackles with length can get into him and control the snap. Can improve balance at contact on second level. Despite a start at guard, his size makes him a one position player. Will face steep increase in strength in quickness from what he's seen in the Big 12. Gets grabby at times and holding penalties have found him more than they should this season. Short arms will always be a concern for him.
