Scouting Report

Evaluated 01/21/2023

Andrew Ivins
Andrew Ivins Director of Scouting

A speedy cover corner that has impacted the game in all three phases on Friday nights scoring touchdowns as both a wide receiver and a return man. Measured just over 5-10, 160 pounds back in Spring of 2022. Owns a slender build, but does his best to make up for it with his wheels. As a 10th grader, took second at the FHSAA 1A state track meet in the 200-meter dash and fourth in the 100-meter dash. Also anchored a 4x100 squad that captured gold. Obviously, can chew up turf and quickly close gaps. Has some experience in bump-and-run coverage as he likes to shove wide receivers and then retreat back towards the sidelines. Picked off four passes as a junior and broke up six more. Could likely carve out a role on the perimeter on Saturdays, but his future might be in the slot. However, will eventually need to add significant mass in hopes of not getting overpowered in the box. Should be viewed as a developmental prospect with plenty of upside given the speed markers. Likely going to need some time before he’s ready to go on Saturdays. Viewed by most scouts as a defender long term, but makes plays on offense and could get looks there, as well.

Athletic Background

Also a talented sprinter. As a sophomore, took silver at the FHSAA 1A track meet in the 200-meter dash with a wind-legal 21.47 in spikes. Also member of a 4x100 team that captured gold and placed fourth in the 100-meter dash with a 10.74 (2.0) effort.
2022: Got snaps at CB, WR/RB and KR/PR for a Cardinal Newman squad that went 11-1 and made regional finals of Florida's 1M playoffs. Per MaxPreps, totaled 12 tackles, 6 PBU and 4 INT on defense. On offense, caught 20 passes for 307 yards and 4 TD.
2021: Three-phase player as a sophomore at Cardinal Newman that worked at CB, WR and PR/KR.
