Bottom-age 195/90 inside-out key position utility
Capable sustaining a ranking of 1-3 on an AFL list
Similar style to Nick Riewoldt
Selling points are outstanding mobility, huge vertical leap, pace, clean hands both overhead and at ground level, quick ball movement, intensity at the contest, good recovery, upside (has been playing 3 sports at a high level and hasn’t completed a pre-season for footy)
Query is that he hasn’t put full games together at this stage (rating based largely on attributes and upside)
Should be a very good to outstanding key forward or defender (best suited to CHF) - has ‘top 20 AFL player’ potential.
I expect him to show flashes of potential, will need at least a couple of pre-seasons for it to all come together – build his body (needs about 5-10kg to reach his ideal playing weight), achieve a stronger fitness base and learn the intricacies of the game better.
