Mar. 17 -- The 2018 Scout 300 offensive tackle Rafiti Ghirmai from Texas recently visited UCLA. Check him out in recent clips from The Opening Dallas...

The above video features 1-on-1 clips of 2018 Scout 300 four-star offensive tackle Rafiti Ghirmai from Frisco (Texas) Wakeland at the recent The Opening Dallas regional camp.

Ghirmai holds offers from across the country, including programs such as AlabamaFloridaMichiganTCUTexas, Michigan, UCLA, and many others. Ghirmai took an unofficial visit to Alabama and then one to UCLA last week.

Ghirmai possesses a lot of potential because he combines a great frame with tenacity and athleticism. Below are more evaluation notes on Ghirmai:

Rafiti Ghirmai is a top-tier offensive line prospect in the state of Texas' 2018 recruiting class. He possesses an adequate frame for the tackle spot at the Power Five conference level. He's fairly athletic relative to his position and has a big reach that should give him a high ceiling as a pass-blocker.

Ghirmai could potentially prove position-versatile at the next level as well. He can play a bit high at times and his hand placement lacks consistency, but all the physical tools are there for Ghirmai, who thrives in the run game and owns the requisite traits to become a well-rounded high-major O-lineman. - Gabe Brooks
