Three-star OL plans to check out Louisville

Robby Havenstein from Frederick (MD) Linganore is considered one of the top offensive linemen on the east coast. Checking in at a massive 6-foot-7, 340-pounds, Havenstein recently got an offer from Louisville.

Rated a three-star prospect and the No. 28 offensive tackle in the nation, Robby Havenstein is a priority prospect for several big-time schools, including Louisville.

As a junior, Havenstein was named first-team All-Conference, All-Area, All-Metro and All State. He's also an excellent student, boasting a 3.85 GPA in the classroom.

"Robby is the most complete linemen I've coached in my 23 year career," said Linganore head coach Rick Conner. "He has it all... size, power, agility, leadership and intelligence. For a young man in only his third season of football, Rob made all of the blocks. Now, he has become one of the top linemen in Maryland and on the east coast.

With his size and athleticism, Havenstein is a quarterback's best friend on the line.

"He's great on pass protection, a wall when down blocking, gets to the next level at linebacker, and pulls with authority. You name it, Rob can do it. Simply put, Robby is a coach's dream. We ran for 4,000 yards 56 rushing TD's and most of it behind #70."

Rob Havenstein is one of the top
OL in the nation.

Havenstein holds offers from Penn State, Maryland, Virginia, Stanford, Wake Forest, NC State, Kansas State, East Carolina, Wisconsin and South Florida. Havenstein also just picked up an offer from Louisville last week. Havenstein has visited Penn State, Virginia and Maryland this spring and plans to visit NC State and Wake Forest soon.

"Louisville's a great place and my dad is a big fan of theirs," Havenstein said. "They've told me that they like my tape, my size and they also like the way I move. I'm planning on taking a trip down there. We're driving through Louisville on our summer vacation and I'm hoping to pop in for a day."

Havenstein plans to get a better handle on the recruiting process over the summer.

"Right now I'm just keeping all of my options open," Havenstein told "I don't have a timeframe, but I'll probably start narrowing down my schools over the summer.

"Probably the No. 1 thing for me is making sure I graduate. I want to go to a place where I will graduate, and I also want to know that I'll get the chance to play and have a legitimate shot at making it to the NFL."
