Offensive Scouting Report
When you go against this kid you better have a good pre-game meal and you better buckle your chin strap good and tight because he is going to bring all he has and is going to battle you. He has great size with a thick lower body. He is an explosive kid that is capable of quickly getting off on the snap of the ball. He is a very physical player at the point of attack. He quickly explodes out of his stance with good pad level. He displays the ability to consistently shoot his hands, get under a blocker’s pads, generate good power from his lower body, win the leverage battle, and stand up and knock back blockers. He is quick and violent when engaging a blocker and flashes the ability to quickly shed. He moves well laterally in a short-area and at times can quickly side-step and avoid blockers to get penetration. He is a solid tackler and displays a good motor. Shows good hustle for a big man and will work to get to the ball. He can be tough against the run. As a pass rusher he can get some initial push with a bull rush and displays the ability to work to half-a-man and be able to come off and get some pressure. John is an easy kid to like. He plays hard and is physical. Will be an asset at the next level.
