A highly-recruited dual-threat quarterback and overall athlete, Tyrone Swoopes, stands to make an impact at the next level—whether it be on offense or defense.

The 6'4", 230-pound Texas native has the versatility to play quarterback or receiver in college, as well as safety or outside linebacker.

According to 247 Sports Composite, Swoopes is a 4-star recruit out of Whitewright High School (Texas) and is a dynamic athlete. With a scintillating combination of size, speed and physicality, there's a reason why he could perform, and perform well, at various positions in college.

As a quarterback, he's not a legitimate pocket passer. Instead, he throws better on the run and sprinting downfield out of the shotgun spread. He's incredibly tough to sack, and he seems to always find a way to escape pressure and make something happen.

When his feet are set, he has the arm strength to make most college-level throws, but he does need to improve on his footwork as well as his mechanics in the pocket. When his mechanics are right, he has the ability to lead receivers and drop the ball over coverage, so there's still a chance for him to make an impact as an all-around quarterback with some coaching.

While he has the most experience as a dual-threat quarterback, his pure measurables could see him make a significant impact as a receiver or a physical defensive player. But it will take some work because he is raw at those positions at this point.

Overall, he is a physical specimen who could make waves from the start based on his pure talent alone, but in order for him to be a consistent threat, he needs to be coached up and he needs to learn and work hard at the next level.
