Evaluation:

Speed, speed, and more speed. AHB is a burner who has also shown the ability to make people miss at the high school level. He has the type of suddenness that Louisville hasn’t really seen since Eli Rogers was the primary third down option for Louisville. He combines that quickness with electric speed and playmaking ability.

Another aspect of AHB’s game that stands out in his highlights is his ability to run through tackles and shrug off contact. Most guys his size have a hard time handling contact but AHB does well to spin off of tackles by using his balance. I’d be very surprised if he doesn’t see the field early unless UofL adds a grad transfer in the slot.

Summary:

Louisville had to wait things out with AHB as he was a heavy Virginia Tech lean even though Gunter Brewer got in on him early on. I don’t know what caused the change of heart but Huggins-Bruce has credited Brewer’s experience with top receivers as a reason for why he chose Louisville. AHB will arrive in January which should help him secure time on the field in the fall.
