Kevin Sousa

Name: Kevin Sousa                        

Location: Orlando, Florida           

Position: QB

Ratings:  Scout – 3*, Rivals – 3*, ESPN – 3*

Recruitment: The first, but hopefully not the last commit from Florida, Sousa jumped at the Michigan offer as soon as he got it.

Offers: Michigan, WVU, Texas Tech, Illinois, Wake Forest, Vanderbilt, USF, UCF, Colorado State.

Stats: Completed 89 of 175 attempts (50.9-percent) for 1,442 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions. Rushed for 931 yards and five more scores. Listed as 6’4, around 220lbs, has a great build for the position.

ESPN Analysis: Sousa is the type of kid that will intrigue coaches and give them much to evaluate due to his size, athleticism and raw tools as a passer. He is a great looking player physically and one that could easily be moved to another position because he is so athletic.

Makes fast and good reads, and once he gets his feet set can make all the throws, even on the run. Can make things happen even after the play breaks down, can elude tackles with speed  However he has an over-the-top release that can be robotic. His feet and arms aren't always in sync and that hurts his accuracy, and makes his motion look a bit stiff at times. Touch throws are something to be worked on.

Improvements:  Needs to improve his accuracy and general mechanics work. Footwork needs to be improved too.

Final Thoughts: He hasn’t been playing football that long, Soccer used to be his sport. He has natural athleticism that could see him play a skill position if QB doesn’t work out; has said that he’ll do whatever the coaches want, so he’s open to playing elsewhere.
