MVP Camp Top Performers: Offensive Line

In Wednesday's recruiting update, Dawg Post breaks down the top performers on the offensive line from the Lassiter MVP Camp

Christian Meadows, 2018, Macon County (GA):

Meadows is a promising prospect from the 2018 class that had an excellent day at the Lassiter MVP Camp. Th 6-foot-3 330-pound lineman showed his dominance right from the start, and was named overall MVP of the camp.  He is not the tallest guy, but hes thick and displayed great strength.  He still has some mechanical issues that need fixing, but that can be taught over time.  I knew from watching tape that Meadows excels in run blocking, but he was very impressive in pass protection during the 1 on 1 drills.  He was beat a couple times by smaller/faster edge rushers, but he was dominant for most of his reps.  Meadows has had a good spring overall, and was impressive in March as well during the Atlanta Opening in Buford.  Look for Meadows recruitment to start picking up soon. He is a lineman to remember for the 2018 class.

Luke Griffin, 2019, North Murray (GA)

One of the top underclassmen in the state of Georgia, Griffin proved again why he could be a national recruit in the 2019 class.  He has great size at a 6-foot-5 275, and has the frame to put on more weight and muscle as he continues his high school career.  He has long arms and did not lose a rep that I watched.  He has the body of a true tackle, and showed quick feet as well.  He definitely looks the part already as a sophomore, and will continue to get better as he is a player who loves to compete.  The Georgia Bulldogs offered Griffin at the end of Saturday's Kirby Smart camp in Athens, and Griffin committed on the spot.  He is Georgia's lone commitment for the 2019 class.

Jakarri Robinson, 2017, Munford (AL)

If schools are still looking for a solid guard/center option for the 2017 class, they should take a hard look at Jakari Robinson. The 6-foot-2 315-pound Alabama native was tough to beat all afternoon. Like Meadows, he isn't the tallest guy, but has great balance and plays tough.  He moves his feet well for a man over 300-pounds, and plays with a mean streak.  What stood out most when watching film is that he plays all the way until the whistle.  He gives tremendous effort and it's starting to pay off.  He is an excellent run blocker so it was interesting to see if he could hold his own in pass protection drills, which he absolutely did. Look for more schools to start interest in this talented 2017 interior lineman.

Casey Holman, 2018, Brookwood (GA)

Holman was not a guy I was familiar with going into the camp, but he was a guy who stood out from the start.  The 6-foot-4 283-pound lineman looked very comfortable at tackle, and was solid in pass protection drills. He consistently won his reps, and was in the final showcase during the 1 on 1 battles.  Holman has the potential to be a solid tackle prospect in the 2018 class, and was very impressive overall during the MVP Camp.
