Prospect Look: Bryce English

Desoto, TX defensive tackle Bryce English has TCU among his favorite schools.

Player: Bryce English
School: Desoto
Position: DT
Rank: No.39 DT


At 5-foot-11, 315-pounds, English is a bowling ball in the middle. Not the tallest of defenders, but pure strength overcomes English's lack of height.


Allen and Desoto was probably the best game I've seen live this season. Allen won the game as time expired with a field goal to give them a 25-22 win. Desoto did a great job defensively limiting Allen quarterback Kyler Murray to huge plays; although he got them when it counted most. English was a force in the middle. Most of Allen's yardage on the ground came from scrambles to the outside. English uses his short frame to his advantage, exploding off the snap and being low to the ground where offensive lineman can't get their hands on him and gain leverage. Offensive lineman are at a big disadvantage in that department when lining up against English. Like most defensive lineman, English needs rest between every three plays, but when he's in there he's going 100% every play. Will be a big pickup for anyone who lands him. Would flourish in TCU's defensive scheme; especially with the rotation the Frogs have on the defensive line.
