West '15: Preseason Top Ten Offensive Guards

Pocatello (Idaho) Highland four-star Tristen Hoge tops the West's offensive guard rankings...

1. Tristen Hoge, 6-4.5, 291, Pocatello (Idaho) Highland
Committed to Notre Dame

The Skinny: The top offensive lineman in the West, and arguably the top prospect to come from Idaho in a decade, Hoge solidified his standing in the Scout 100 after a good showing at The Opening.

2. Tevita Halalilo, 6-4.5, 240, Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde
Committed to UCLA

The Skinny: Southern California's top offensive lineman comes from a program that knows a thing or two about elite nationally-ranked linemen.

3. Semisi Uluave, 6-5, 320, Honolulu (Hawaii) Punahour

The Skinny: After a sterling performance at the Oakland NFTC, Uluave was invited to The Opening. Now fully healthy, he leads a powerful Punahou offensive line.

4. Tim Lynott, 6-4, 295, Aurora (Colo.) Regis Jesuit
Committed to Colorado

The Skinny: The top offensive prospect in the state of Colorado, he made a lot of people close to home happy by committing to the Buffs, a gigantic pickup for CU.

5. Zach Okun, 6-4, 303, Newbury Park (Calif.)
Committed to Oregon

The Skinny: An early commitment to Oregon, Okun triggered a domino effect of top end linemen committing to the Ducks.

The Next Five:
6. Zach Robertson, Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco
7. Cody Creason, Folsom (Calif.)- Committed to Arizona
8. James Empey, American Fork (Utah)
9. Jake Hanson, Eureka (Calif.)- Committed to Oregon
10. Ve'ehala Tuihalamaka, Los Angeles (Calif.) Cathedral
