Who: Kaleb Slaven >

Vitals: 6-5 265, OT, Muncie (IN) Delta

Other offers: Cincinnati, Indiana State

Breakdown: The first thing that jumps out at you on Slaven’s film is his athleticism. At 6-5 265, he is still growing into his body and will easily add another 35-45 pounds without losing a step. Slaven moves well and gets out and pulls. He is tough in pass pro, but doesn’t get a lot of opportunities because his team runs so much. Slaven is athletic enough that he excels at DE as well, which tells you his skills are there.

Projection: A 2-sport athlete (also the starting Center on the basketball team), Slaven’s athleticism and frame give him a tremendously high ceiling. He will surely not play right away as he adapts to playing on the outside as well as adding good weight and strength to his frame. However, if everything goes well, he has the potential to be a top end OT in the MAC.
