OL Jamal Medlin
6-6, 295, 5.0
Orangeburg Wilkerson High School
Orangeburg, South Carolina
Strengths: Jamal Medlin has the prototypical size that college coaches look for in a Division I tackle. He uses his arms well to lock onto the opponent. Medlin has a long wingspan that helps him widen the pocket, and keep opposing defensive ends at bay. He's good one-on-one and stays under control when moving to the second level. Has imposing size and is able to engulf the defender. Uses leverage well.
Weaknesses: Raw. He needs improvement on his footwork, strength and speed. He will need to develop a drop-step to help him in pass blocking. In fact, Medlin worked in a run oriented offense and will have to develop the necessary pass blocking techniques when he gets on campus.
Film Evaluation: Jamal Medlin has the tools to be not only a good, but great lineman at Clemson. Medlin has dominated good competition including a strong regular season showing against top DL Adam Patterson. His stock continued to soar as he performed well against Shrine Bowl competition. Working with Joey Batson will allow him to develop his natural physical talents and a red-shirt year will allow him to develop the necessary skills, especially in the passing game, to succeed on the Division 1 level. It will be key for him to come in with a good attitude and work ethic.
