The offensive tackle is a position of depth and talent in the Midlands Region for the 2015 class. All but one of listed recruits at the position are reporting BCS offers...


Complete Reports:
QB | RB | WR | OT | OG | DE | DT | LB | S | CB

Trevor Elbert (6'6, 290) - Rockwall (Texas) Heath
Play guard and tackle as a sophomore on tape. Has a quick first step and gets out quickly, even though he tends to play a tad bit high at times. He is consistent with his footwork in past protection and does not get off balance often in the deep set. It is harder to gauge offensive linemen and true tackles especially, but has many of the tools you look for. Should become more dominant with natural strength progression.


Connor Lanfear (6'5, 262) - Buda (Texas) Hays
Texas Commit

Right now it is clearly obvious that he is a great run blocker. He coils quickly and firs out on defensive linemen to drive them back. Pad level is key to him gaining and securing leverage to finish off his blocks. He plays hard all of the way to the whistle. He looks like he could play a number of positions on the offensive line, but has things to work on to become complete. Looks like and plays like a natural right tackle prospect.


Conner Dyer (6'4, 275) - Mesquite (Texas) Horn
It’s a solid year for offensive tackles and Dyer may be the most complete. He has great frame and quick feet. He is pretty solid in pass protection, because he is strong and physical at the point of contact and has great reach. Has been playing against a very high level of competition. He is also a good run blocker. This is where his strength shows through. More consistency with his footwork could make him the top OT in the region.


Bobby Evans (6'5, 235) - Allen (Texas) High
Oklahoma Commit

Played tight end as a sophomore, where he showed a lot of potential going forward as an offensive tackle prospect. Was a blocker, not a passing target. He may be the quickest off of the line of all the offensive line prospects and can really run. Will need to work on technique and moves as a true offensive lineman, but has a great frame and long arms. He has the type of frame that could really develop in to elite.


Toby Weathersby (6'5, 277) - Spring (Texas) Westfield
Right now Weathersby is highly considered based off of his camp performances and nor on the field production. He has great frame and is one of the more impressive specimens in attendance at the Nike Football Training Camp in Dallas and held his own against top level players in both the 2014 and 205 classes. His recruitment should spike with quality on the field reps and available highlight film.


Keaton Sutherland (6'5, 260) - Flower Mound (Texas) Marcus
Another potential player who has secured multiple BCS level offers already. He has a great frame, and is one of those guys you can literally say looks more like a defensive end, because that is exactly what he plays in high school, where he earned district newcomer of the year honors. This off-season he started working at offensive tackle and offers started flowing in. He has a college pedigree and a high upside to be a top prospect.
