Starters - Tanner Highlen plays both offensive guard and defensive end in high school, I see him playing guard in college. Tanner is a very good student in the classroom and he's a very emotional football player that gives 110% on every play. He camped at Arizona, Arizona State, Notre Dame and Northwestern this summer. Tanner wants to be a lawyer and he's looking for a school that will provide him with a good law education.
Positives - Again, you don't have to tell Tanner Highlen to get pumped up for a game. He seems to have a very good motor and he has a passion for the game of football. Tanner is very strong, he gets off blocks and finds the football in traffic and he also has the ability to chase down a quarterback. Moves very well for a 270-pound young man.
Negatives - Hips are stiff and comes off the ball to high. Needs to stay lower on offense and also needs to more hip explosion at the snap of the football. Average in space and average change of direction at the 2nd level.
Summary - Very good high school football player but will be a "Down the Road" type guy for major D-1 schools. May be tapped out on size and potential…Will play guard or center in college. Could end up being a solid contributor at some point in his college career.
