Indiana OL Getting Looks from Toledo

Having a good long snapper is very important in college football. Toledo has been solid at the position since Jeremy Mack came to Toledo in 2005. However, an injury has put Mack on the shelf and freshman Colin McHugh has stepped into the position. While McHugh has done a great job, Toledo could be looking for another player to compete with Colin in the future.

Tyler McGuigan is a left guard at Lawrence Noth High School in Indianapolis, IN. The 6-2, 280 pounder is having a good senior season. "If I can recall, I have not let any sacks happen on my part (this season)," Tyler recently told Rocket Digest. McGuigan also mentioned that he gets about 5-10 pancakes per game.

"I get most of them (pancakes) on my trap plays as a left guard," Tyler said. He added, "My coach says that's my best skill because of my speed and how tight I stay to the hips of my other offensive linemen."

Tyler has increased his forty time since this summer, from 5.28 at the Cincinnati Combine this summer to 5.16 this football season.

On the recruiting front, Tyler says that he doesn't have an official offer yet but does receive a lot of interest and requests for his transcripts and highlights of him on the football field.

"I'm hearing from many schools letting me know they're interested," McGuigan said. "I've talked to the head coach from Toledo about long snapping, short snapping, and maybe playing offensive line."

At this time Tyler says he does not have any favorites, and does not have any official visits setup. Tyler has heard from schools such as Toledo, Air Force, Ball State, Colorado, Florida State, Indiana, and Purdue.
