***Recruiting Forum Rules - READ BEFORE POSTING***

The recruiting forum has gotten out of hand and we need to fix this right now. I admit that I myself may have slipped up in the past, but not anymore. The recruiting forum is not exempt from the rules for the rest of the forums. This is not a new rule, just a clarification of an existing one.

Links:

No factual information can be posted without a link to the source of that information. This means any time a player commits to a school, names a leader, drops a school from his list, etc. you must provide a link with your post. If you do not have a valid link supporting your information then keep it to yourself. Obviously, you don't need to link to your own personal opinions. Just make it clear that they are your opinions.

Acceptable Sources:

Most online newspapers and websites are acceptable. No premium information (info that you pay for) is to be posted. The only exception to that rule is if the information you are posting is in the header of a premium article, which is free for all to read. If the information is hidden behind the words "click here to subscribe," then don't even bother. Websites such as Buckeye Planet, IrishEvy, and MGoBlog are acceptable. However, only information from the articles/interviews/blog posts from these sites are permissible. Any information obtain on one of these sites' message boards should be assumed to be unreliable (even if you yourself trust it). Anything posted on Facebook is private information and should be treated that way.

Disciplinary Action:

Since this is a fresh reminder, everyone gets one freebie. The first time you break this rule, you will have your post deleted and that is it. If you break it a second time, your post will be deleted and you will get a warning. If you ignore the warning and break it a third time, you will receive an infraction.

Remember, these are Scott Wright's rules not mine. We want everyone to still have fun, but we can't keep ignoring the rules of the website.

    6-8 337 OT
    Cretin-Derham Hall Minnesota


    The player that everyone has as their number one OT prospect. I saw a local game of his on television today. They rotated him from right to left tackle all game. He played defensive tackle at times during the game as well.


    However from a player that is supposedly the best offensive tackle in the nation, he did not dominate like I think he would have. It improved as the game went on however. But at times he got beat even and also at times he did not even touch anyone blocking. I would think he would be pushing defensive players and pancake blocking everyone he touches. Maybe run blocking is not his strong point but even in pass protection his technique was suspect. He did not hold his block either and did not drive the defender backward.

    Physically he is moderately skinny in his lower body, a lot bigger up top and does not have a strong base, should have bigger thicker legs one would think for such a large player.

    Now I do not question his potential and talent, and I am not very experienced in watching high school football players because clearly they are not on that often. Maybe they always look this average, but from what I saw outside of his obvious physical size and length, he still has a lot of work to do.

    Clearly any kid 6-8 300 pounds and a good enough athlete to play basketball, he is potentially going to be a great offensive lineman because you assume a level of athletic ability and pass protecting potential.


    And maybe he will be that, but coming into watching this game, I was hoping to see a player physically dominate at the point of attack and push people around, I did not see it constantly. I was thinking it would be like Shawn Andrews at Arkansas, just physically destroying everything he touches and pushing them completely out of the play. So it was kind of disappointing in that regard but he did pick it up at the end of the game.



    Will be interesting to see how he develops his game, but really if a kid has the size, it does not matter the skill they will recruit them. Just like big men in basketball, any kid 6-10 or 7-0 with any ability at all will get colleges calling them. Same with offensive lineman 6-8 337 who play basketball.


    I hope the best for the kid, he is a Minnesota player so hopefully he can do well at the next level. A redshirt year would be amazing for him I bet.
