Can run through and fight off arm tackles. Good vision and agility allow him to make defenders miss in the open field. Will run in the 4.5s to 4.7s, so while he may not always possess track speed, he sure does hit a lot of home runs.
Already enrolled, so he will get a chance to show that he can play. If he has a strong spring and fall camp, then he will see the field in 2016. If he doesn't, there will be some disappointed coaches.
