247 Rank:  National - 727 / WR - 96 / TX – 99

Commitment – Undecided

Name/Location/Date/Time of film for evaluation – Keith Wheeler ll - Hudl - 1/31/2021 - 3m 32sec

Physical Attributes –  Keith has solid size and length.  He is a twitchy athlete who has excellent initial get off/burst, acceleration, explosiveness.  He can run but does possess elite long speed.  Is a straight line runner and shows some lower body tightness. 

Position Specific Skills –  Keith shows excellent initial quickness, get off, burst and acceleration.  He has natural hands, can adjust to the ball in the air and can run well after catch.  He possesses solid play speed but lacks elite  long speed.  He is a willing blocker who shows toughness and the ability to finish. He can drop his weight on routes and stab his foot at full speed which is tough to cover. 

Overall – Keith closes the cushion about as good as i've seen on film in his class.  Once he closes that cushion he can stab his foot and redirect.  A refined route runner with good hands and play speed.  I like the way he gives effort and competes.  You must know where he is or he can hurt you.  Needs to work on long speed and dropping weight and bursting and acceling on shorter & intermediate routes.
