OL Daniel Borg
|1. Daniel Borg | Ironwood Ridge
HS (Tucson, AZ)
Has had a tremendous summer so far, and his stock has skyrocketed on the west coast. Performed extremely well at the Nebraska Camp as well as being "the best lineman at the camp" at Coach Stoops' Big Man Challenge. His grades are a non-issue as is his confidence. Nebraska made a big push at Borg, but he has dropped them from his top 5 AFTER his visit to their camp.
Projected position: OT
OL Michael Marks
|2. Michael Marks | Joseph HS
The knock on Marks is his level of competition. Playing eight man football against smaller opponents makes for a tough transition to Pac-10 play and it has also served to keep him something of a secret, which is actually fine with him.
He wants to stay close to home and favors an ag school, and it appears those are the only schools willing to travel to Joseph. Marks will benefit greatly from agility training and is considered a little stiff at this poing. He is also considered the best offensive line prospect in the State of Oregon by The University of Oregon. Grades are a non issue, no test reported but he carries a 3.6 and plans to major in Civil Engineering.
Projected position: OT
What could change his mind: A strong push by WSU.
OL Kenny Alfred
|3. Kenny Alfred | Gig Harbor HS (Gig
3. Kenny Alfred – He is remaining relatively tight-lipped about his
thought process. He is doing a very thorough job of researching the schools and
staffs that are showing interest. Has attended WSU, OSU, and UO camps and left
the OSU and WSU camps with an offer. Has a brother who plays on the
offensive line at Eastern Washington, but Kenny seems destined for bigger
OL Arturo Rodriguez
|4. Arturo Rodriguez |
Las Vegas HS (Las Vegas, NV)
Another Las Vegas stud sure would look good on the OSU roster. Arturo is considered the top o-line prospect in the state of
Nevada. He performed well at the Adidas camp at UCLA and has a very strong
lower body as well as a 6-foot-5 frame. He is attending the UNLV team camp this
summer and lives in the weight room. Goes by AJ.
If the Beavers can land two of these four prospects, they will have a solid base for the 2005 offensive line class. Look for one more prep and one more junior college kid in this class as well.
Others to keep your eye on:
- Ben Loebner OT (6'9"!!!)
- Moran Roseburough OT (415 pounds!!)
- Nick Thorton Jack OG/C
- Rodney Picou OG
- Aleksey Lanis OT
