2016 OL Prospect Looking To Impress At Auburn

Lake Worth (Fla.) 2016 OL standout Ean Biancardi talks about visiting Auburn for a camp this weekend.

Lake Wales, Fla.--A talented class of 2016 offensive lineman already with offers from Florida International and Hampton very early in the process, 6-5, 285 Ean Biancardi has seen his recruiting take off in recent months after a strong spring practice showing.

Hearing from other schools such as Florida State, Kentucky, Indiana, Oklahoma, South Florida and UAB, Biancardi is hoping to add another college to the list this weekend when he makes a trip to camp with the Auburn Tigers.

“Actually, this will be my second time going to Auburn,” Biancardi said. “I came up last year during the summer and went to one of their camps. I really enjoyed it. It left a lasting impression on me. When I left I told my brother that I had to come back next summer or the next chance I had. I really enjoyed it.

"I really like Coach (J.B.) Grimes and his style of coaching," the prospect pointed out. "He kind of breaks things down to a technical standpoint and I learn better like that.”

With Auburn’s offensive line class expected to be a small one for 2016, this is going to be a big weekend for Biancardi to try to impress Grimes. Already with one camp experience under his belt, he said that it gives him a good idea of what he needs to do well come camp time Saturday night.

“I think it’s real important,” Biancardi said of his opportunity this weekend. “I have been working real hard trying to get a lot better and get my name out there. I have definitely improved a lot since last season. I’m hoping to go out there and showcase my skills and get higher on their radar.”

A physical blocker who excels in the run game, Biancardi finishes his blocks well. With two more seasons to mature he has the chance to become a force on the offensive line in the Florida high school ranks before all is said and done. Still with plenty left to work on he said is focus now is on improving his pass blocking skills.

“I’m trying to get stronger,” he said. “It’s real important to stay in the weight room. I’m also trying to get a lot faster. I am working on my footwork and my agility. One thing I have been focusing on, especially with camps, is they kind of put an emphasis on pass pro (protections) and pass blocking. That’s really the only way to show out at these camps is in the one-on-one’s. Ultimately I have been working out and trying to get better in my pass blocking.”

In addition to his return trip to Auburn this weekend, Biancardi also hopes to hear more from SEC brethren Alabama and Georgia before it’s time for him to make a decision down the road.
