The Sunshine State lacked a headline worthy defensive tackle in 2012, that will not be a problem in…
2013 Intro: Mandarin (Fla) DT
Name: DT Kingsley Opara School: Mandarin HS (Jacksonville, Fla) Size: 6-4/275 2011 season stats: Opara finished his junior season with 30 tackles, 10 for loss, 5.5 sacks, and three caused fumbles. Grades: 3.2 GPA/880 SAT score Recruiting: Opara says Florida State was his childhood favorite but now lists Georgia Tech, Maryland, Louisville, and South Florida as his early favorites. No one has offered him a scholarship yet. As a Prospect: Opara is a talented defensive lineman who has experience playing both end and tackle. He has the athleticism to play on the edge and can get after the quarterback out there, as a strongside guy. However, his size and growth potential makes him more of an inside type of prospect. Either way, he's very athletic for his size and made a lot of plays in opposing backfields last season. He's one of the premier D-Linemen in the greater Jacksonville area and should begin to see some major college offers in the coming months leading into spring football.
