The athletic tall spent time at both ends of the ground in the VFL after starting 2018 as a forward.

Was good in attack, showed he can read the play well as a defender and also impressed as a pinch-hitting ruckman late in the year.Has contested marking strength, offers versatility and can cover the ground well.

Will spend the summer with the forwards, with a 2019 AFL debut a realistic goal.
