He is near the top as short sprinter, long sprinter, and long jumper, and so picks up points for Georgia in both individual events and relays. He's a sort of Swiss Army Knife, who can be moved around in different meets. It may work against him for the Olympics, however, as he is not the clear leader in any event. His upper-body form is better than last year, but still terrible, so coaching and training could still bring improvement. Maybe nothing more to get out of his legs, though. He should peak in 3-7 years.
BTW, Terrence Laird is not as versatile, but might be more likely to medal in the Olympics.
I imagine football coaches look at that speed and torso and shake their heads, wishing they could get him on their squad.
