On the Hoof: Moala is a thick-limbed bulldozer, built low to the ground. His torso is very wide, giving him the look of a huge bench presser. He is built like a slightly thicker version of South Florida signee Todd Chandler.
Needs Improvement: Has a tendency to pop straight up on the snap of the ball, so working on flexibility and staying lower at the point of attack is imperative. He needs to watch his weight because he does not want to get any bigger and risk losing his mobility.
Most Impressive: Moala is a very powerful human being that can push offensive linemen straight back into the pocket, causing it to collapse. He also takes up a lot space laterally, closing off holes for runs right up the middle.
Conclusion: Has the size to contribute early, but needs to make sure he is in top condition prior to showing up on campus. Look for him to become a run-stopping machine that inflicts injury while defending the goal line.
