OL Ben Gabbard
6-5, 305, 5.2
Broadneck Senior High School
The Clemson Tigers continue to hold a firm lead for the 6-5, 305 pound prospect from Annapolis. Gabbard is eager to improve on his junior season where he only allowed one sack in eleven games. "We just started practice Friday. Our first day in pads is tomorrow."
Gabbard continues to hear from a number of other schools, but says it is hard to gauge the interest from just the mail. "Other teams are showing lots of interest but it's hard to tell from just letters," stated the prize recruit.
The timing has not changed for the Broadneck Senior High lineman, as he still plans to take some visits before committing. "I still think I'm going to try to take visits and then commit. I will still be watching the commit list however. I'm thinking about starting to take my visits in early December."
Gabbard just found out that one of his high school coaches is a good friend with Coach West. "Actually I just found out today that one of my coaches, Sammy Steinmark, is really good friends with Coach West." The outstanding lineman was very impressed with Coach West when he visited a Clemson practice in early August with his family. Gabbard also has an aunt that is very close to Coach West's wife.
We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding offensive lineman from Maryland, right up through signing day 2004.
