The Opening: U-M Lineman Prospect Report

The competition went in full swing as the lineman battled it out today at The Opening.Checkout GNW's full report on Michigan prospects and how they fared to day in the event.

Five-star 2016 defensive tackle Rashan Gary

Only a junior, Gary is a massive 6-foot-4, 280-pounds, and with supreme confidence among the other elite players in attendance. He had a solid day in the lineman challenge and was one of the top-five lineman there. He won his fair share of one-one-ones today. He relies too much on his strength at the moment. He will need to develop more moves before he goes off to college in 2016. If he does, he might be unstoppable. He noted he’s trying to make his way up to Michigan for a visit later this summer.

Four-star 2015 defensive end Terry Beckner Jr.

Terry Beckner Jr. lived up to his four-star billing today. The Lincoln state star was dominant in the one-on-ones. His power was on full display as no lineman could handle him. He also plays angry, nasty and just flat out mean. You could see the intensity in his eyes. He was my No. 1 defensive lineman throughout the contest. He still contends that his recruitment is wide open. He says no visits have been scheduled and Michigan is still being considered.

Five-star 2015 defensive end Keisean Lucier-South

At 6-foot-4, 210-pounds, Lucier-South lacks ideal weight for his position. However, he makes up for it with his top-end speed. He had a solid performance and won his fair share of the one-on-ones in camp. Whenever he was able to use his speed he was able to blow right by his opponent. But when he tried to go inside, he would get stalemated. He was pancaked once. But was able to recover with a strong showing the rest of the camp. He is planning to take a official visit to Michigan on Oct. 27 when the Wolverines host Penn State under the lights.

Four-star 2015 offensive lineman Matthew Burrell

Burrell struggled throughout today’s event. He got beat multiple times on the one-on-ones and lack the first step to stay in front of his opponent. He simply was too slow. He is a big guys at 6-foot-5, 305-pounds, but will need to work on his speed/quickness moving forward. He noted a visit to Michigan may still be in the cards.
