2003 Profile: OT Matt Hoffman

True offensive tackles that can make an early impact have been few and far between this recruiting season, at 6-6 and 300 pounds, Matt Hoffman has thrown his hat into the ring of contenders.

They don't come much bigger than Wheaton, MD product Matt Hoffman. Hoffman is an offensive tackle prospect that has the size and strength to make an early contribution on the next level. He stands 6-6 and 300 pounds and has good quickness with a 5.4 forty time. He has better than average strength with a bench of 315, a squat of 465, and a power clean of 265. He hit a couple of camps, but spent most of his summer getting bigger and stronger in the weight room.

"I pretty much stayed in the weight room all summer," said Hoffman. "I went to summer camps at Maryland and Delaware. I'm pretty much wide open when it comes to schools right now, but my top 5 I guess would be Clemson, Virginia, Michigan State, Delaware, and UMASS."

Hoffman's Good Wheaton team is off to a 1-2 start which is understandable with only 4 starters returning. Hoffman does anchor a veteran line that returns. "I like run blocking. I like bowling people over," said Hoffman with a laugh.

The region is short on true tackle prospects this fall, and Hoffman has the size, strength and quickness that will get him a look from several college recruiters along the east coast.
