Recruiting - Top Offensive Lineman in Calif

With the conclusion of the 2009 spring practice session, the football world now turns towards recruiting. Inside Sparta will provide a listing of the top players at each position in the State of California. The next class of Spartans may very well come from these lists, so use this to follow along. One name on the list is already familiar to SJSU fans on Inside Sparta.

This list, as with all the lists, will be linked from the front page of Inside Sparta. Offensive tackle is a position of need for San Jose State.
