Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

Completely in charge pre-snap, with several calls and reads. Looks off safety. Adequate mechanics, with above the line lower half and adequate torque and follow-through. Strong in the pocket, can shake off a tackler and break outside. Throws a nice jump ball. Can make throws while running either direction. … Average footwork in drop. Feet die in pocket. Limited decision-making, skips reads and oblivious to bait. Consistently skewed shoulders in throwing motion lead to extended release. Average anticipation, waits until after break to make the throw and struggles to lead receiver. Displays average accuracy, frequently forcing receivers to adjust to make catch or missing altogether. Average arm strength that doesn't show sufficient velocity. Panics and makes poor decisions against repeated pressure. Plays hero ball in big situations.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
RS Senior who has started 20 of 25 career games, including all 10 in 2021 for a 2-8 record and 7-18 career record. Two-star recruit for Boston College, backed up Anthony Brown for two seasons before transferring to Brown and immediately taking over as the starter. Led the nation's best offense in 2019 as a First Team All-Ivy QB, leading the team in both passing and rushing. 2020 season was cancelled. In 2021, named First Team All-Ivy QB, Ivy League OPOY, and Bushnell Cup recipient. Under HC James Perry (fourth season, no relation) and QBs Coach Heather Marini (third season), Perry led a shotgun-heavy offense that spread the defense horizontally with frequent RPO concepts. Backup QB you can win despite when throwing to large catch radii. Prepared passer with complete command of offense. Threatens outside the pocket and as a rusher. Extremely tough, high-motor player. Short passer with lacking arm strength and worrying decisions. Doesn't create YAC with accuracy. Disturbing W-L record.
