OT Zach Bateman

6'7 | 320

Recruiting: Committed to UCLA.

Scout Eval: Bateman is a big lineman that will come in and compete for immediate playing time. He's a good run blocker, doing a great job of using his size and strength to drive his defender. Sometimes plays a bit high, but shows that he can play with some flexibility and just needs to work on some technique and using his hands better. Good size and frame, and definitely has tackle size for the Pac-12. It will be interesting to see if he plays left tackle in college, flips over to right tackle, or slides down and plays inside on the left side. He's not only the #16 JUCO prospect overall but the #2 JUCO offensive line prospect in the nation. - Brandon Huffman
