Scouting Report

Ayinde has decent speed for a CB with good coverage skills and excellent range.  He's a bit undersized, but that should be mitigated with good work in the strength and conditioning program.  He may not get much playing time in his first year, but he figures to develop into a player that can be quite productive in future years.  During his junior year, he converted from Wide Receiver to Cornerback, so he still has a lot of room to grow into his position.  Recently hired CB coach Kenny Perry was recruiting Ayinde to come to TCU, so the transition to Kansas recruit was a natural one.
