SCOUTING REPORT

Friermuth is a more traditional player who can line up inline and block in the run game, line up in the slot, or out wide to gain a potential matchup advantage. In high school, the former basketball player showcased his box-out skills against defenders to win one-on-one jump balls. He is not a speedy player but has enough burst off the LOS to get his body in front of second-level defenders to make short to intermediate catches. He can improve his ability as a blocker, needs to work on his hand usage and footwork.
