5096, 187, 4.53

Notes: From Mount Laurel, NJ. Appeared in 13 games with 2 starts as a true freshman, posting 29 tackles, 1 TFL, 2 INT (for 44 yards), 7 PBU, 1 FF and 1 FR in 2015. Started all 14 games, with 36 tackles, 5 TFL, 0.5 sacks, 1 INT (for 14 yards), 10 PBU and 1 FR in 2016; also averaged 7.5 on 22 punt returns. Redshirted in 2017 due to torn left ACL knee injury.

Positives: Plays with confidence. Smart player with good field awareness and instincts. Student of the game. Quick, scrappy and tenacious. Good ball reactions. Breaks on the ball nicely. Good speed. Flies up on run support. Good open-field tackler. Capable punt returner.

Negatives: Modest size and does not have outstanding speed. Lacks length on pass defense. Gets dragged for yardage sometimes as a tackler.

Summary: Doesn’t have the length you look for outside but looks the part of a nickel corner in the slot.
