Sean Donnelly, A/M, IMG Academy (Fla.) / CT Chargers, Patriot Donnelly impressed me in a number of ways this weekend. To start, he possesses great size and is deceptively quick, both end-to-end and out of his dodge. Donnelly plays with a swagger and is able to make impressive and intelligent plays in a variety of ways: coming out of the box on occasion, off a rollback or with face and split dodges. Donnelly verballed to the Syracuse Orange between the event and this event’s release.
Sean Donnelly, Attack, IMG Academy (Fla.), 2019 – Syracuse
Donnelly is bigger and more physically impressive than the last viewing we had, and that’s helping him become a more assertive dodger from X or the wings. The righty jabs hard at his defender with stick-back dodging and keeps his head up. He has a shot that can be blistering and he will pull the trigger in transition or from low angles in the free-flowing IMG offense. One of his best goals came when he dodged from X with a jab step, rolled to his left, got topside and threaded a beautiful backhand shot that nailed the top shelf. He also tries to work the two-man game and display an awareness of how to set up plays and get himself open for quality shots. Expect to see a lot of him for IMG next spring.
