Thread: Recruiting the offensive line - Future Line

  1. Default Recruiting the offensive line - Future Line

    GSU will have the runners next year.... WK3, Shai, Logan Wright, JD King... With another year in the system under their belts, this group has the talent to be dangerous at the skill positions.

    Question is... can the offensive line and other blockers open up the offense? And also, does the Debesse offense require a certain kind of lineman to be more effective?

    According to 247 Sports, they don't have a single offensive lineman committed, but they may just be developing young players and not need many offensive lineman in this class. GSU will return 4 of 5 starters on the offensive line. The 5 backups on the offensive line are freshman, freshman, freshman, junior, sophomore. This means 9 out of the top 10 offensive line return for next year.

    If you had to build the offensive line with Debesse recruits, here is what it would look like. These are all freshman, Lunsford/Debesse recruits.

    LT: Verneal Henshaw (6'4'' 250) - Played at Flagler Palm Coast High for Coach Travis Roland … A first-team selection to The News-Journal’s 2018 All-Area football team
    LG: Griffin Carder (6'4'' 300) - A first-team all-state selection to the Group 6A team by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution … A first-team all-state selection by RecruitGeorgia … Had 30 pancakes and 15 knockdowns as a senior.
    C: Javonte McGriff (6'1'' 285) - A first-team all-state selection to the Group 2A team by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution … Rated as the No. 84 offensive guard in the country
    RG: Aaron Pyron (6'4'' 310) - Played at Arabia Mountain High for Coach Stanley Pritchett … Rated as the No. 178 offensive guard in the country
    RT: Khalil Crowder (6'1'' 300) - Graded out at 86 percent for his senior season, recording 24 pancake blocks for Carrollton during its run to the Class AAAAA state quarterfinals … Helped clear the paths for a Trojan rushing attack that amassed 3,000 yards on the ground in his final campaign

    Now, there are guys in front of these fellas... Juniors, seniors, RS Juniors, RS sophomores, etc that weren't part of the Lunsford/DeBesse plan. But they have recruited an entire offensive line of freshman who were picked for this system.

    Will be curious to see how players recruited by DeBesse factor in next season with the returning guys after a full season under their belt.

    We do have an offensive lineman committed. Check out our recruiting board here for all commits rather than 247 who only gets updated occasionally.

    Uh no we need another class like the one last year.

    Our OL classes are not exactly balanced right now so it'll take some time to get that sorted.

    We should be signing about five OL every year, plus additional guys to make up for attrition.
    Thanks, Rastabot!
