Charlton relentless in loss Friday (w/video)

GBW was on hand for Pickerington Central's clash with rival Pickerington North Friday night. 2013 Michigan defensive end Taco Charlton continued his strong senior season compiling multiple sacks, tackles downfield in pursuit and even matched up with fellow commit Jake Butt in the 37-0 loss to North.

GBW Scouting Report: It was only a few weeks ago that I had the opportunity to be in Pickerington to watch Central and Taco Charlton take on another 2013 Michigan commitment in Jaron Dukes and Marion Franklin. While Charlton and Central got the best of Dukes and Franklin in that match-up, it was Pickerington North that came to town to lay a smack down. Despite losing in blowout fashion, 37-0, Charlton was once again a bright spot for Central. An impressive motor from a young man that is more than aware he only has a handful of games left as a high school football player, Charlton never stops running plays down, routinely making tackles down the field. Since North was running away from Charlton as much as possible, Taco used his relentless approach to impact the game. From a pass rushing standpoint, Charlton is flat out disruptive. Charlton accounted for a couple of sacks and on one of them he showed great instinct and discipline to stick with the quarterback after play action, taking him to the ground on a key 3rd down. His size, strength and speed combination will be a welcomed addition in Ann Arbor as the Wolverines will try to mold his pass rushing technique into an even more effective asset in his game.
