I was really surprised at the quality and number of offensive/defensive linemen at the Upperclassman Showcase. Big sophomores and freshmen who will be juniors and sophomores this fall.
We have had good linemen in the past, but not as many as this year. I remember Lakota West’s Steven Faucheux (2019) class who is getting some BCS offers. Fairfield Union’s Colin Woodside (2018) who has committed to Cincinnati. Connor Head (2018) form Revere HS, has committed to Toledo. No one was a “no-brainer” last year, but just worked hard and played well last fall.
Much the same this year. A lot of potential scholarship guys, but they need to work hard in camps and play well next fall. Being an underclassmen they have at least two more years.
The following linemen looked good at Underclassman Showcase, but still have plenty of work ahead to get better. Some have to “slim down.” Some have to run better and get quicker. Some to be improve footwork. Most have to be better benders. Note – height/weight are with no shoes.
