Coaches Q&A with Joe Henrich:
Q. What are his strengths at wide receiver?
A. He has great speed and great body control when he has to go up for a ball. He’s very smooth and good at making people miss and he has soft hands.
He’s one of our guys that can make big plays for us every time he touches the ball. One of his best assets is making unbelievable catches. He’s a tremendous and confident athlete.
Q. What are his strengths on defense?
A. In our defense our corners play in space. He has great range and he has the ability to go up and get the ball because of his length. That’s good when you are matched up outside on people.
What has got him here is his athleticism. It’s his ability to play left to right and cover ground and be able to get up and make plays on the ball.
Q. How is he as a returner?
A. He’s very good and is working on getting better as a returner. He’s very fast and makes plays either on punt or kickoff return.
He has the ability to be elusive in open space and has the speed to take a seam and go.
College offers: As of 6/30, he has offers from Buffalo, California, Purdue, Rutgers, Virginia and Western Michigan
