Looking ahead to the 2023 class their is a young man that demands your attention. At 6'4" 220 LBs he stands out at the St Louis football fields. Already highly pursued by recruiters he is sure to make a program very happy in the future. He is generally listed as a defensive end prospect but don't sleep on his abilities as a wide receiver.
Think of someone similar to AJ Brown, a big play, large bodied matchup nightmare.
