OL Troy Reddick Update

Looking for that big offensive linemen that dominates the line of scrimmage in every way possible? Look no further than Troy Reddick, otherwise known as "The Big Engine".

Troy "The Big Engine" Reddick is a true workhorse on the offensive line that has been recognized consistently as one of the top football players in the southeast. As a 6'6, 310 lb. offensive tackle, its easy to see why all of the major division 1-A football programs in the south are beating down his door.

Reddick currently has four official visits set up to Clemson (1/11), Auburn (1/18), Florida Sttae, & Florida (1/24).

"I don't have any favorites right now. I will wait until after my visits to decide."

So what factors will play into his decision? "I honestly don't know," Reddick said. "Just wherever feels right. Closeness to home doesn't really matter. I am pretty much in the middle of all three schools."

"Clemson is a fun program," says Reddick. "They had some injuries that hurt them a little this season. They are losing a couple of guys but they are still going to be strong in the passing game and I like that."

As a defensive tackle this season Reddick registered 43 tackles and three sacks despite missing nearly a third of the season with several minor injuries. On the offensive line, he was just as impressive not allowing a single sack from his left guard position.

Unfortunately for Reddick, he turned his knee the last game of the season and is scheduled to have arthroscopic surgery later this week. Not to worry though, he is expected to be back to 100% after a few weeks of rehab.

Reddick runs a 5.2 40-yard dash, benches 340 pounds, and squats 450 pounds,and even at 300+ pounds, he can do a full split.

As a junior, he graded out at over 87% while helping pave the way for a 2,000 yard rusher. He also recorded 20 tackles and five sacks as a defensive lineman.

As it stands now, it appears that this recruiting battle will end up between Florida, Georgia Tech, Clemson, and Auburn, but all teams are standing on a level playing field right now.

Reddick's decision will likely come down to which school he feels the most comfortable at during his official visit.

We'll keep you posted on this big time prospect as we receive more information.
