2022 – Saf - Keon Sabb – IMG, FL - 6’3 / 195
247 Rank: National - 8 / Saf - 1 / FL – 3
Commitment – Un-Decided
Name/Location/Date/Time of film for evaluation – Gateway Regional – Hudl - 10/20/19 – 1m 59sec
***SHORT EXPOSURE FROM 2019 PLAYING QB***
Physical Attributes – Keon is a Good size kid. Has thick lowers. He is athletic and can run. Not overly dynamic with the ball in his hands and doesn’t possess elite speed or quicks but combined with his size, he is a special athlete. Looks to have balance and body control and some twitch for a big athlete.
Position Specific Skills – To evaluate Keon as a Safety from that 2 minute video at QB will be a tough one. He shows he can run which could apply to him being able to play the deep half. Looks like he would be a good match up vs a TE or bigger WR with his thickness, length and athletic ability. His feet, change of direction, burst, acceleration, long speed, are all good for his size. He looks like a tough kid which could translate into being a willing tackler. He does give great effort on film.
Overall – If Keon keeps growing (the video was from 2019) he may not be a DB for long at the college level. Like most, young, prospects, how their body fills out along with how much twitch, athletic ability, change of direction and burst and acceleration they have will determine exactly what they will become in terms of position. Keon has a big upside because of those possibilities with size to athletic ability and speed.
