East Region: Top Uncommitted OTs

Scout.com continues a position-by-position breakdown of the top uncommitted players in the East Region's 2015 class, and it continues with the offensive tackles.

There are a few weeks left in the spring evaluation period, and the spring 7-on-7s and combines are winding down.

So, what better time to take a look at where recruiting stands?

Scout.com continues a positional breakdown of the uncommitted prospects in the East Region with a look at the top uncommitted offensive tackles:


Isaiah Prince, 6-6, 290, Greenbelt (Md.) Eleanor Roosevelt

Schools in contention:Maryland, Auburn, Florida, Ohio State, Michigan, Nebraska, West Virginia, Alabama, Tennessee and Virginia Tech, and others

Skinny: Prince is maintaining a top four of Maryland, Florida, Ohio State and Auburn, but it is early in the process. He is most familiar with Maryland because of the proximity, and his ability to visit the campus and meet the coaching staff. He plans to make a summer visit schedule, but he is yet to set dates. However, Prince said he wants to stop at a few of the SEC schools which offered, as well as make a Midwestern swing.


Grant Newsome, 6-7, 290, The Lawrenceville (N.J.) School

Schools in contention: Penn State, Michigan, Duke, Northwestern, Wisconsin, Georgia, Virginia and South Carolina

Skinny: Newsome is nearing a decision, and conventional wisdom points to a pair of Big Ten schools as he readies for visits to Michigan and Penn State in early June. He already took trips to Northwestern, Maryland, Penn State and Duke, but the a return trip to Penn State and the visit to Michigan could be a foreshadowing. Academics are a high-priority for Newsome, and going to a school where he will receive a prestigious degree is a priority.


Patrick Allen, 6-5, 270, Franklin (Md.) Reisterstown

Schools in contention: Florida State, Ohio State, LSU, Tennessee, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Georgia and Michigan

Skinny: Allen originally cut his list to six schools, but that was before Georgia and Michigan offered and started recruiting him hard. Now, he told Scout.com he has a top three of Georgia, Florida State and Ohio State, but there is no leader among that group. Visiting those campuses are paramount to Allen making a decision. He said recently coaches from LSU, Tennessee and Florida State are the ones he has the best relationship with, and the type of offense could impact his decision.


Austin Clark, Lexington (Va.) Rockbridge County

Schools in contention: Clemson, Ohio State, Penn State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and Virginia Tech

Skinny: Clark named a top seven in late April, but he has no leader among the group. He is looking at making a decision in early June, and built strong relationships with each of the staffs. He also was able to get to plenty of schools to see the campuses and check out the facilities. It could come down to whether or not Clark wants to leave the state, or if he is more comfortable playing close to home.


Austrian Robinson, 6-6, 270, Trinity Pawling (N.Y.) School

Schools in contention: Boston College, Maryland, Purdue, Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Virginia, Rutgers, South Carolina and Connecticut

Skinny: Robinson plays defensive end and wants to play on the defensive line in college, but Scout.com projects him as an offensive tackle because of his skill set. His recruitment remains wide open, and distance doesn't figure to be an issue. He is from New York City but goes to school in upstate New York, so he is used to being away from home. He visited Rutgers twice in the spring and is hearing plenty from Syracuse, Maryland and Miami. Late last month Robinson said Rutgers had "the upper hand," but he added he does not have any favorites. He wants to visit South Carolina, Boston College and Connecticut during the camp season.


Sam Madden, 6-7, 325, Barnegat (N.J.) High

Schools in contention: Rutgers, Wisconsin, Syracuse, South Carolina, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Iowa, Miami, Pittsburgh, West Virginia and Ohio State, and others

Skinny: At this point, Madden is yet to narrow his focus. He made a recent visit to Rutgers, which increased its recruitment of Madden, and he is slated to visit Wisconsin on June 15. He also wants to visit Syracuse, which is close enough to do in one day. He wants to make a decision during his senior season, and is targeting late October or early November for his announcement.


Chance Hall, 6-5, 283, Roanoke (Va.) Northside

Schools in contention: Tennessee, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Ohio State, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, Syracuse, Maryland and Duke

Skinny: Each of the above mentioned schools offered Hall, who recently began playing on the offensive line. Hall's recent visits were to North Carolina and N.C. State, and he previously made visits to Vanderbilt, Tennessee, Wake Forest, Arkansas, Maryland, Virginia and Virginia Tech. He does not have any favorites, but lives in the heart of Virginia Tech country. Hall is hoping to make a decision prior to his senior season.


Blake Camper, 6-7, 280, Virginia Beach (Va.) Cox

Schools in contention: Maryland, Rutgers, Virginia, Northwestern, Marshall, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Duke, Wake Forest, North Carolina, North Carolina State and West Virginia

Skinny: Camper made a recent visit to Rutgers and in the early spring visited Virginia, Maryland and Rutgers. He holds offers from those schools as well as Northwestern, Marshall, N.C. State and West Virginia. He plans on visiting Wisconsin again, but does not have any other trips set up. Camper's goal is to trim to a top five in the summer and announce his decision prior to his senior season.
