Some will look at Padilla and question his heigth. However, we're talking about one of the top wrestlers in Ohio (2019 Ohio Heavyweight State Champ) who understands using leverage to win battles in the trenches. A natural center, Padilla shows the ability to reach second level defenders or stay in the box and use brute strength and technique to win battles. At times plays high, but that is coachable. Has very good feet and continues to improve on his technique. A player who could surprise with a strong summer camp showing with Mid-American Conference schools taking hard looks.
