2003 Profile: OL Jerry Sevin

The Tigers' recruiting arm continues to stretch west of the Mississippi, in fact it goes all the way to the great state of Louisiana. Today we bring you an indepth look at another incredible offensive lineman- Jerry Sevin.

Jerry Sevin (6-3, 294, 5.0) of River Ridge John Curtis, Louisiana is another in a long line of great offensive linemen for the powerhouse John Curtis team. Sevin is an outstanding center prospect who bench presses an amazing 465 pounds.

He put up 185 lbs 33 times in at the NIKE camp in Alabama several weeks ago and was reportedly one of the most impressive offensive linemen there.

Sevin will be a nationally ranked offensive linemen before the recruiting process is over with, as he already has offers on the table from LSU, Ohio State, Texas A&M, UCLA, Clemson, and West Virginia.

Jerry is also another kid that is outstanding on and off the football field, as he carries a 3.4 grade point average and a 21 on his ACT.

Sevin allowed just one sack in his last 43 games and he has averaged almost 7 pancakes a game as a junior. (And I'm not talking about breakfast either.)

If anything, you have to love this big lineman's size. He is an impressive 294 lbs, he is one of the strongest kids in the state, he has good footwork, and outstanding quickness. Sevin has also been voted an All-State performer each of the last two seasons, and you can be sure that a third straight selection is right around the corner.

Look for LSU to be the team to beat, but a whole range of big name schools from west coast, the midwest, and the southeast have already offered, and Sevin is willing to wait until the end to make his decision.

Clemson is in the thick of things, and the Tigers were one of the first schools to offer- so that's good. Although it is unknown where Sevin will be camping this summer outside of Texas A&M.

We will continue to keep you updated on Mr. Sevin throughout the summer and next fall.
