Reminds Us Of

Matt Lee Miami Hurricanes

Active blocker with some big-man twitch that can get to the second level and seal off running lanes. Size hasn’t been third-party verified, but is believed to be over 6-foot-4 and tipping the scales at somewhere around 295 pounds. Spent the past few years working at left tackle down in the Sunshine State, but projects as more of a guard or even a center on Saturdays. Was also deployed here and there as a defensive tackle. Latches onto defensive linemen with heavy hands and steers them out of his way with impressive leg drive. Can unleash plenty of power by firing through his hips. Better run blocker than he is a pass blocker at this stage, but far from a complete product, and is likely only going to improve his footwork in the coming years. Should be viewed as a potential multi-year starter with all-conference upside if he can keep progressing.

H.S. Athletic Background

2023: Clearwater Calvary Christian's starting LT for the third-straight season. Helped Warriors go 10-3 and make regional finals of Florida's 2M playoffs. Also got some snaps on defense and had a sack against Tampa Berkley Prep.
