S/S from looking at his film he seems to be more of an OLB or MLB from his junior film on HUDL so my question is that is this a guy the coaches are wanting for DE or is he going to be this hybrid LB who may come in almost be like one of Bama's Jack LB's.
6'3-6'4 at 215 with tape of him hardly ever putting his hand in the dirt just has me asking myself what do the coaches have in store for this guy.
I like his film and his eye to the football but he just seems everywhere at a multitude of positions right now.

I haven't seen his film. Would it be possible to attach a link? TIA.

They think he is a hybrid but they want to see what his true size is because that will play a large role into their thinking. All John Chavis and Brick Haley have is film to go off of right now so they won't have a good feel for that either until this spring or summer.
In this picture he appears to have some length to him, but in others it doesn't seem that way. I guess we'll know soon.
I thought the same from looking at his film too then see where he was measured at 6-2 at Nike. He looks closer to 6-4 than 6-2 on film.
I hadn't seen this video posted yet. I'm sure others have watched it. He looks every bit of 6'2 but more like 6'3 to me. I could be wrong though.

Two things I really like about this kid are: 1) his ability to use his hands when shedding blocks and 2) his ability to properly leverage the play. Both things bode well for his ability to play DE or LB. His ability to shift through traffic tells me he is reading the play instead of just running to ball. In traffic, and when taking on a block, he does a really good job of lowering his pad level so that he doesn't get blown up. Very active hands for a high school kid. This is usually one of the least coached aspects of taking on blocks. He also takes VERY good pursuit angles to the ball. There are few plays on the film where, although he is standing up, he clearly has DE responsibilities. Toward the end of the Hudl film, at about the 3:20 mark, the play is away from him but he keeps his shoulders square and forces the QB to give the RB the ball, which is what you want on a zone read type of play. I have attached another highlight film of him in a camp setting. It does have some plays with him at a true, hand in the dirt, 4-3 DE.
Truthfully, I like the kid as an ILB. He diagnoses plays well, plays with good leverage, and has pretty good speed. A lot depends on how the staff thinks they can put weight on him. I don't see Mingo type of speed off the edge, so, ideally, he needs to be 255-260 to play DE. He can play LB at 230-245 lbs.
Especially when it comes to DL & LB, I trust Coach Haley and Coach Chavis.
If he is brought on board, best of luck to this young man.

Once again AJ, great breakdown. The film that you posted illustrates your points very well. I was shocked to see him lined up inside at DT and ILB, but he did do a great job of shooting gaps and seperating from blockers when engaged. Not sure what his true ht/wt are but the kid seems to have pretty decent strength and a great first step. That film shows some great position versatility, imo.
Just looking at the film, he's a freakish athlete. He's versitlie enough to play a number of positions.
His offer sheet includes Tennessee and Ole Miss. No Florida, Auburn, Alabama, Miami, or Florida State?
Apparently, he's below the radar/ This is the second recent situation where we don't know the kid's true measureables. He's been described as 6'4", 6'2. and 6'3" with a vertical jump of 33". Is he still growing? 40 speed? Apparently, he plays HS basketball.
Looks like a hybrid type; Chavis will figure this one out.
