Over the past several weeks, we have unveiled Ohio High's top 105 football prospects for the Class of 2006. Today, we are up to the No. 10 spot on the list. Here is Duane Long's capsule on this prospect:
10. ***** Lee Tilley 6-7 292 OL Springfield South
Tilley is a wide-bodied player with long arms and good feet. Unlike most high school linemen, the college coaches will be looking to see if Tilley can be a run blocker, not a pass blocker. In the pass-first offense at South, Tilley already has plenty of experience as a pass blocker.
I think Tilley got a little heavy last year, but he is doing something about that. He was up to 321 in January but is down to 292 on his way to 285, or less. Springfield South offensive coordinator Jeremy Beckham is putting in the work with Tilley in the off-season. In his offense, being able to move is essential, and he is going to help Tilley return to his sophomore year form. Tilley has been offered early by Georgia, Oklahoma, and Nebraska, among others, which gives you an idea of just how good he can be. Notre Dame is also heavily involved.
