In Person Eval: David Mahaffey

The state of Mississippi is flush with talented offensive line prospects for the 2013 signing class. One of the top available big men is Brandon's David Mahaffey. Mahaffey and Brandon rolled through Warren Central last Friday night to get their season off on the right foot. Mahaffey is hopeful that he can play his way into some college scholarship offers with a strong senior season.

David Mahaffey profile

Mahaffey was one of the first offensive line names to hit the Mississippi recruiting radar after his strong junior season.

David spent a lot of time on the road this summer getting to know college coaches and putting his talent on display in hopes of earning more attention from the decision makers at those programs.

Mahaffey appears stronger at the point of attack this season and despite the high level of humidity last Friday night, the talented senior was able to play with a high level of effort.

An interior line position appears to be the way to go with David. Some programs have talked to him about playing center, but he could play either of the guard positions as well.

On Friday night, Mahaffey spent a lot of time at left guard and was the lead blocker on several running plays including Brandon's first score where he pulled and cleared a path in the three hole.

Despite having more of a boxy frame, Mahaffey has good arm length which enables him to control his man with greater ease once he gets his hands inside.

There is a lot to like about Mahaffey, but at this point most college programs appear to be following him for now.

David is strong and smart. While he is not a 6-5, 325 monster, Mahaffey can get it done. He can be extremely physical and he likes to play with a mean streak.

Look for Mahaffey to be a name of interest following the conclusion of his senior campaign.
