2010 Position Review: Offensive Line

There was a boatload of talented JUCO offensive line prospects available in 2011 recruiting class, so JCFootball.com decided to take a look at where the top line prospects ended up and how they will fit in at their new schools...

NDSCS OL Jacob Fahrenkrug (Florida State)- It's rare for a guard prospect to be the top rated lineman in the country, but Fahrenkrug is a rare combination of size, athleticism and anger. He's physical at the point of attack, he has quick enough feet to be solid in pass-protection and he has enough athleticism to get to play outside if necessary. He's already enrolled at Florida State and taking part in spring practices and he chose the Seminoles over a who's who of top programs in the country. It is expected that he will be a two-year starter in Tallahassee.

NDSCS OL Matt  Williams (California)- Fahrenkrug's teammate ended up out west after seeing offers from schools across the country. Williams, a native of New Zealand, is still learning the finer-points of the game and his upside is huge. He too has already enrolled at Cal and will fight for playing time along what Bear fans hope is one of the better offensive lines in the conference. Williams fits better outside, probably at a right tackle spot, and could be a bookend tackle for Cal over the next two years.

Cerritos OL Fou Fonoti (Michigan State)- A tough, hard-nosed player with enough athleticism to hold up against speed rushers, Fonoti is a prospect that really saw his stock skyrocket as teams got a look at him during the season. Fonoti could play anywhere along the offensive line, but the expectation is that he will be at one of the tackle positions once he arrives in East Lansing this summer.

Citrus OL Jason Peacock (Arkansas)- When you see Peacock walk out on the field, he's the textbook definition of a left tackle. With quick feet, long arms and a huge frame, Peacock promises to be a mainstay in the Razorbacks' lineup over the next two years. Peacock is already on campus and working out with his new team and should have a good shot at earning a starting spot if he lives up to expectations.

CCSF OL David Garness (USC) - He isn't rated that highly as far as stars are concerned, but make no mistake, Garness is a player who should do very well at Southern Cal. He's quick and has outstanding athleticism, but he's also got a bit of a nasty streak and that's what really has set him apart as a player. USC swooped in early with an offer and there was little doubt he would end up with the Trojans once they put the heat on him to commit.

Iowa Western OL Dallas Hendrikson (Rutgers)- Hendrickson isn't much for talking to the media, but that doesn't matter since he let's his play on the field. Hendrickson is expected to handle the pivot for the Scarlet Knights and with his smarts and strength, he should be a fixture inside for the next couple seasons.
