What Scouts Say: "Technically not as clean as you'd like him to be, but has good pace, good power and likes to play with his back to goal so he can get other players involved in the game ... Would like to see him be a little more dynamic and be a danger to score on his own ... when they played 4-3-3, he was No. 9; in different formation he can be more dangerous ... Has athleticsm and physical presence to have a chance in MLS... doesn’t need a bunch of opportunities to score goals… lot of injuries ... Stock is down because he missed a lot of the year, six weeks of the season maybe more and the team suffered as a result ... He's more athletic than tehcnial but not just a bull in the china shop ... engouh technical that being in a pro enviroment wher eyou're forced to be trehcncial, he has enough there to delveop and can get better at it."
