School: Danville (Calif.) Monte Vista
Position: Offensive Line
Size: 6-5, 291-pounds
Recruitment: Committed to Ohio
Scout.com Ranking: Three-Star, No. 61 offensive guard
Scout.com Evaluation: Welter is one of the top offensive linemen in Northern California and has done it for one of the top programs in the region. He's played tackle for his high school team, but projects more to play inside in college.
Welter is a road-grader, and routinely pancakes his opponents. He does a good job reaching the next level in run blocking and is technically sound in pass protection.
We think he's a steal for Ohio and Frank Solich, who coached his father, Tom, at Nebraska.
