Jean Delance Heating Up

One of the top uncommitted offensive tackle prospects checks in at 6-foot-5, 270-pounds from Mesquite (Texas) North Mesquite. Jean Delance is the No 5 overall ranked offensive tackle prospect in the class of 2016.

Texas has one offensive linemen committed for the class of 2016 and looking for more.  Texas fans can expect four offensive linemen on National Signing Day.  One player Texas has a great shot at landing is from North Mesquite.

My Take

Jean Delance is one of the most heavily recruited players in the state of Texas.  The four-star standout is wanted by Alabama, Michigan, Texas and Texas A&M to name a few.  Michigan and Texas appear to be the front runner for Delance and his services.  Jean Delance and family have very good relationships with more than one Texas coach including Charlie Strong.  I also like the fact that Delance has a close relationship with Texas Longhorns linebacker Malik Jefferson.  It will be a battle until NSD but I like where Texas is sitting right now. Take

He is a true offensive tackle prospect who can project out as a left tackle or a 'blind side' tackle. He moves well and is light n his feet in pass protection and shows true aggression as a run blocker. Finishing to the whistle and securing blocks down the field of the second and third levels. He has a long and lean frame and looks light for a 280-pounder. He will be able to add good muscle and weight as he matures giving him high upside. - GP
