Zack Bevilacqua Update

We continue to look at offensive linemen with a peek at Zack Bevilacqua (6'3, 310). Bevilacqua, who is from Butler High School in Matthews, North Carolina, is a preseason all-state selection and a 4-year starter for his team. With the high school season already underway, the offers are starting to pour in for this strong prospect.

Zach's current leaders (in order) are N.C. State, Clemson, East Carolina, South Carolina, Auburn, Virginia, and Virginia Tech.

Zach Bevilacqua is known primarily as a run blocker, but he's been working on his pass blocking during the offseason.

From the coaches we have spoken with, he is described as an offensive lineman who is a tremendous run blocker with "a ton of strength." Zach benches 380 lbs and squats over 500 lbs. His most recent time in the 40-yard dash is 5.3 seconds. Zach is also currently ranked as the 4th best prospect at the center position in the country by Max Emfinger.

As an All-Southwestern 4-A Conference, and All-Mecklenburg County performer last season, he recorded over 40 pancake blocks and generally dominated the line of scrimage. His stock has been steadily rising throughout the summer as the offers have started rolling in.

Even more impressive is his "no sack" streak, which has now reached an incredible 27 games. Thats 27 games in a row without giving up a single sack!

Clemson has not formally offered Zach at this time, but thats really just a formality. Bevilacqua is certainly one of the top 5 prospects on the offensive line in North Carolina, and he'll have his choice of schools up and down the east coast before signing day comes around.

With his brute strength and raw power, Zach Bevilacqua could fit very well into Tommy Bowden's offense. As it stands now, the Tigers appear to be in the running for this kid, as he has mentioned Clemson generally in his top 3 or 4 in several interviews. We'll keep you updated on any breaking news from this monster offensive lineman throughout the season.
