Pro College Football Player Development and Scouting comments: Recently has begun training with Paul Assad. Adjustments to footwork and set up more stationary. Was thrusting foward as he was punting and also releasing the ball very early. Seemed strong but inconsistent but has been working on shorter footwork with smaller steps, point of balance set up before making leg action movement and also ball set placement to the outside with less downward in of the ball nose angle as well using his kicking leg more then the thrusting his body and moving around so much. Seems more consistent and controlled. Very strong. Once I started working with him it was obvious why he was rated so highly coming out of colleg as the no. 1 prospect but the injury hindered his progress in week 7 of his senior year. Should be a legitimate camp and 53 man prospect punter this season.
