Scouting Report on Nick Waisome

by Barry Every - 06/03/2010
  • SpeedBlue Chip
  • SizeDivision I Player
  • StrengthDivision I Player
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • Ball SkillsDivision I Player
On the Hoof: Waisome has a very narrow waist, wide shoulders and almost no body fat. He does have ideal arm length for a corner. Has the lower body of a sprinter. He is physically similar to Baylor signee Tyler Stephenson.
Needs Improvement: Would like to see him add about 10 pounds of muscle mass, which would allow him to become a more physical tackler. He has good hands but has shown a tendency to allow the ball to get to his body.
Most Impressive: Has excellent change-of-direction skills and very good speed. Waisome also does a nice job of coming out of his breaks to make plays on the ball. He is very competitive, and has the athleticism to be a punt returner.
Conclusion: Most likely will redshirt as he gains size and strength. He should excel on special teams as a return man or kick-coverage guy. Look for him to be a solid two-year starter or better.
