Scouting (Staff):
Paul Assad, Pro College Football Player Development and Scouting comments: Has worked with Paul Assad. Fast foot. Has some good habits approach angle to the ball and get his feet down. Gets the ball up and makes pressure kicks. Explosive kick off. Smaller but will grow and improve power as well. Might get an opportunity in Camp. Perhaps, still has some work to do on technique and strength but overall a solid kicker in the Pac Ten following a very successful player into the NFL. Former standout from Camps and Texas High School Scoring Record Setter. Gets his feet down well on Kick Off's.
