BRIGHTON HEAD COACH WILL WOLFE
"Theron's got a world of upside at the next level. He has one of the quickest first steps I've ever seen in 12 years of doing this. Theron also has a frame that can hold a lot more weight. "Theron has really athletic for a young man his size. You're talking about a guy that can stand and long jump well over 10 feet. Not too many guys playing the position he plays can approach that. Theron also has an amazing wing span.
"While Theron is a late bloomer, his motor never stops. That's what coaches like about him on film. He plays from sideline to sideline, and never takes a play off."
