They were several very good offensive lineman at the University of Arkansas football camp this week, but it appears it was a junior that joined UA commit Colby Berna in really standing out.
Pilot Point(Texas) High prospect Cam Feldt (6-4, 280, 5.4) is apparently on the verge of being offered a scholarship by the Razorbacks.
Feldt certainly has the mentality of an offensive lineman.
"I like to run and just hit people," Feldt said. "I like to put them on their backs – you know, a pancake. I think I do that very well."
His dad Blake Feldt is a former college coach who once worked alongside UA assistant Tim Horton and now is the head coach at Point Pilot.
"My dad is now the head coach at our high school, but he coached on the college level for 15 years," Feldt said. "He coached at Texas Tech, the University of Texas and Appalachian State. He was the offensive line coach at Appalachian State when Coach Horton was the running backs coach. They have been friends for about 20 years."
That connection helped guide him toward the Arkansas camp, which finished Wednesday morning.
"I sent in my highlight tape here and they liked it and wanted me to come down," Zandt said. "Coach Summers said he was impressed."
Arkansas joins Iowa, Texas and TCU in showing early interest for the young man who was impressed with what he found in Fayetteville.
"I love the facilities," Zandt said. "I love all the weight room and this indoor practice facility is really nice. All of their facilities are top of their line.
Pilot Point seems poised to bust through this season after just missing the playoffs last season.
"We went 6-4 in the regular season and barely missed the playoffs by points," Zandt said. "This year we are ranked No. 2 in the state with a lot of people coming back and we are a whole lot stronger. We actually started 15 sophomores last season who are now 15 juniors with experience."
He said that while he loves run blocking and feels it is his strength, he is doing his best to develop his pass blocking skills.
"I wouldn't call it a fault, but I would say that the thing I am working on the most is my pass blocking because we only put the ball in the air like five times a game," Zandt said. "I got a lot of good individual attention at this camp to help with that, including that little kick slide thing that doesn't allow a guy to get to your inside."
