Scouting Report: Chris High, FB, Navy

Oklahoma City, OK | 6000 | 225 | 4.55E | 2018

Demonstrates confidence and vision when running the ball. Extremely aggressive ball carrier who will deliver the hit on defenders when toting the rock if not wrapped up properly. Runs fast, runs with authority and carries an intense demeanor between the white lines. An example of this would be during the Fordham [FCS level of competition] game in 2016, where he was able to outrun several defenders and burst free for a 70-yard touchdown run. You can see his football speed when he hits the open field. He consistently finishes every carry. Possesses excellent combination of speed, size and strength. Contributed on special teams as a sophomore. Has drawn praise from the coaching staff for being physical in the box and efficient on the perimeter. In addition, he has grown into a solid pass protector and a team leader. He entered his junior campaign with just five career carries, having played on the junior varsity as a plebe and saw very minimal action as the fourth stringer as a sophomore. It took a couple years for him to learn the triple-option offense, which features the fullback lined up near the line of scrimmage with very little time to react. As he picked up the scheme, his instincts allowed him to burst through holes quicker and faster. He suffered an ankle injury during the first quarter of the Houston game on Oct. 8 and missed the Memphis contest the next week in 2016. He was held out of full-contact drills during the spring of 2017 after undergoing offseason surgery. His running style is a cross between Bam Morris (Texas Tech) and Mike Anderson (Utah). This player is expected to go undrafted but he possesses the capability of being a workhorse in the NFL, similar to how LeGarrette Blount.
