Washington, DC | 6034 | 330 | 5.25E | 2019

Big, strong, physical and wide, making it extremely hard for pass-rushers to get through or around. He does a nice job on chip blocks and getting a body on multiple defenders on any given play. Does well against speed rushers due to his athleticism and ability to change direction but lacks the speed and footwork to play outside. He has a proven track record playing in the Big Ten and has started since his redshirt freshman season at both right tackle and right guard. A visual learner, according to his offensive line coach Tyler Bowen, who sends online video clips and uses practice footage to show examples of the right technique. He has gained about 30 pounds since his freshman season. While he has the experience playing both tackle and guard, he is definitely better suited on the inside, where he can compete for a starting job at the next level.
