I’ll admit to having been somewhat underwhelmed by what I’d seen of him in the SANFL and wanted McDonald. Was extremely happy to be proven wrong
Everyone knew he was very agile and can kick both feet but I wasn't aware of his elite handball and vision at stoppage ability while in ruck. This is probably what our recruiters saw and set him apart from McDonald.

This was noted many times in the two years leading to the draft and was evident watching him play.
