The Opening 2014 Watch List – Offensive Line

OL Drew Richmond at the Memphis NFTC

OL Drew Richmond at the Memphis NFTC

With the Journey to The Opening 2014 set to begin February 1st in New Jersey, it’s time to take a look at the 2015 prospects who’ve popped up on the radar of the Student Sports staff and college coaches around the country.  All week long we’ll be releasing position-by-position watch lists of the top 2015 prospects for The Opening 2014.  These players, plus many others, will continue to be evaluated at Nike Football SPARQ Combines, Nike Football Training Camps, and most importantly, on tape, with selections beginning February 1st at the New Jersey NFSC. First up, the big fellas along the offensive line:

 

Matthew Burrell (Chancellor, Fredericksburg, Virg) - 6-3.5, 278
Was top performer in an elite underclassmen OL group at the Washington DC NFTC. Possesses great power and is one of the nastiest OL in the 2015 class.
Chuma Edoga (McEachern, Powder Springs, Ga.) - 6-3, 273
Edoga shined against an unreal group of DL at the Atlanta NFTC that netted three Opening invites. Class AAAAAA all-state selection clocked a 5.04 40 at the Atlanta Nike SPARQ Combine last spring and looks to have grown into a tackle prospect since we saw him last spring.
Jake Fruhmorgen (Plant, Tampa, Fla.) - 6-5, 260
Led Plant to an 11-win season; Class 8A all-state pick. Has shown tremendous improvement from Orlando NFTC last spring to game tape in the fall, playing himself into conversation of top offensive linemen in 2015.
Noah Green (Boiling Springs, Spartanburg, SC) - 6-4, 271
The Clemson commit logged the highest SPARQ Rating for any offensive linemen on the 2013 tour back at the Charlotte Nike Combine (104.79) and followed it up with an impressive performance at the next day's NFTC. Has great feet and flexibility, and looks to have filled out over his junior season.
Tristen Hoge (Highland, Pocatello, Idaho) - 6-4, 284
Notre Dame commit comes into event season as one of the top centers in the 2015 class. Made noise at the 2013 Oregon NFTC where he stood out through SPARQ and position drills. Incredibly athletic and has a great motor but has a tendency to position block and needs to create better push in the run game.
Martez Ivey (Apopla,Fla.) - 6-5, 271
Athletic tackle was Class 8A all-state selection and key factor for state finalist and highest-scoring team in Florida state history. Is an athletically special talent who will find a home at left tackle at the next level.
Sterling Jenkins (Baldwin, Pittsburgh, Pa.) - 6-8, 290
Massive tackle was a Class 4A all-state honoree by the Pennsylvania Football Writers Association after a phenomenal season for Baldwin. Struggled at times at the Ohio State NFTC last spring, but is vastly improved on tape. Looks to be growing into his body and moves with a fluidity that is downright hard to find for a 6-8 prospect.
Drew Richmond (University School, Memphis, Tenn.) - 6-5.5, 305
Richmond had his struggles at the Memphis NFTC, but the tape doesn't lie, Richmond is elite. Key to his success will be improved footwork in pass protection. Has the physical and mental tools to be the #1 tackle in this class.
Maea Teuhema (Keller, Texas) - 6-4.5, 348
The big Texas commit shined at the Dallas NFTC. Doesn't look his 348 pounds, and moves well laterally. Will probably end up at guard, but is a dynamite athlete with great size.
Fred Ulu-Perry (St. Louis, Honolulu, Hawaii) - 6-1, 301
Ulu-Perry was nearly named MVP at the LA NFTC in a group that included Opening invites Damien Mama, Viane Talamaivao, and Toa Lobendahn. He was that good. Is a bit under-the-radar due to being out on the islands, but was as dominant as any sophomore we saw at an NFTC.
