Signing Day Capsule: Andrew Stueber

Checkout the signing day capsule of Michigan 2017 OT commit Andrew Stueber.

HIS RECRUITING STORY:

Andrew Stueber was unknown when he came to Michigan's big man camp in mid-June. Then, well, after a stellar two-day performance, Stueber walked away with an offer from the Wolverines. And the rest was history, as he would commit a week later.

SCOUTING REPORT:

“Stueber engulfs defensive linemen in run blocking. He is quick off the snap, has a tremendous burst and is strong with his initial punch. He controls the play with his aggressiveness, and he drives his legs well while maintaining engaged on the defender. He can scrape and get to the linebackers quickly, and he has the body control to make the block. Stueber needs to improve his pass protection. He strength allows him to use his initial punch to stop the defensive player in his tracks, but he needs to widen his base and sit back more. He also needs to work on his kick step. He is a natural right tackle, but he could develop into a left tackle.” -- National Recruiting Analyst Brian Dohn

WHY STUEBER CHOSE MICHIGAN?

“Michigan has always been a dream school for me and I thought it was the best school academically and football wise,” Stueber said. “I also had a great feeling with all the coaches and I could really see myself there. I wanted to make a decision before the school year to focus on my last year of high school football and finishing strong.”

BOTTOM LINE:

At 6-foot-6, 290-pounds, Stueber has a chance to be the gem of U-M’s offensive line class. While he doesn’t come from a recruiting hotbed like California or Florida, the Darien (Conn.) standout has the tools to compete at a high Division I level, and will have plenty of opportunity to compete in the two-deep early on in his career.
