Colorado's top prospect, Chris Fox, leads the West preseason rankings at offensive guard for the class of 2013...
West: Preseason Top Ten Offensive Guards
Committed to Michigan
Fox isn't just the top guard prospect in the West but the top overall prospect in the state as well. He plays tackle for Ponderosa and is also a talented defensive lineman but we think he projects best on the interior of the line. He's a physical and nasty player who moves well in space. He's very athletic for a big man, has a great frame, plays with a motor and has a great upside to him. Fox has been a starter on the varsity since his freshman season and has continued to improve in all areas. He'll be able to add weight and strength in college and will add a ton of versatility to the offensive line at Michigan.
Los Alamitos, Calif.
Committed to Oregon
Redmond is the prototype guard prospect when you look at his size, strength and toughness. Like Fox, Redmond plays tackle for Los Al but definitely projects better on the interior and will play guard for Oregon. Very few players out West improved their stock more than Redmond. He had a dominant performance at the SoCal NIKE Camp and then drew raves at
The Opening as well. Redmond might be the most powerful guard in the region and has great strength in his upper and lower body. He has a wrestling background which has greatly improved his overall athleticism in the last year as well as his toughness. He plays with a mean streak, finishes his blocks and has the ability to play right away at the next level.
Committed to California
Like Redmond, Hunt saw his stock soar this past spring/summer as well. There was never a question about his skill level, toughness or ability on the field. The only concern you heard was people talking about his frame and whether he had the frame to put on enough weight to succeed at the next level. Hunt answered a lot of those questions when he physically dominated all comers at the NorCal NIKE Camp and then was rated among the top five OLs in attendance at The Opening. He moves so well, plays with great technique and is much stronger than he looks. He committed to California at The Opening but picked up a recent offer from
UCLA, his early favorite and will give the Bruins a look during the season as well.
