4Zach Banner, OL/DLLakes (Lakewood, WA)6-8/295
Tom Lemming; The son of Lincoln Kennedy possesses all the tools for greatness. Years ago I went to see Jon Ogden play high school ball in Washington D.C. and I believe at this stage Zach is farther along. Ogden had to redistribute his weight and hit the weight room, Banner does not have to do that. Although he has not been much for weightlifting, he already has a great frame and could carry 340 pounds. He can bend his knees, slide and mirror, and has been blessed with strong hands and super long arms. If he wants it badly enough, there will be no stopping him. Has freakish size and is a natural athlete, and those two together are a deadly combination when they are put with the good work ethic and his size 18 shoes. He's the type of LT that when he gets his hands on you it's all over.

8Jessamen Dunker, OLBoynton Beach (FL)6-5/315
Tom Lemming; athletic, explosive, does a great job of finishing his blocks, shows power at the point of attack, and has dominated almost every defensive linemen he's gone up against. He's smooth, a knee bender, and shows excellent initial quickness. He almost always seems to beat his opponent to the punch.

Tom Lemming; On film he looks like the powerhouse that he is. This guy is quick, agile, and smart. Technically sound, he plays LT in high school and should wind up playing that position in college. He already shows good pass blocking skills, is quick out of his stance, shows good lateral agility, can slide and mirror, and flashes a strong, quick punch to keep defenders on their toes. Not yet the dominating player he should become, but he still ranks among the very best OL prospects in western PA.

17Ronnie Stanley, OLBishop Gorman (Las Vegas, NV)6-6/280 3Notre Dame
18Vadal Alexander, OLBuford (GA)6-6/310
Tom Lemming; I was very impressed with the way he finishes his blocks, shows enormous strength, quickness off the ball, and great feet and hands, which allow him to take out defenders in space. Very quick in getting to the second and third levels, he locates his targets and then moves in for the kill. The consummate LT with a great work ethic and leadership skills. His father played ball at Nicholls State, his uncle at Illinois State, and his grandfather with the New York Giants.

NRJoe Harris, OLLithonia (GA)6-4/301
Tom Lemming; Joe shows exceptionally quick hands, good feet, and is both an effective run and pass blocker. Strong, quick, and active with outstanding body control. His very strong upper body allows him to knock defenders off balance and keep them at bay. Quick off the snap, he does a good job of turning opponents away from the play. A couple of high school coaches told me they thought Joe was the best OL prospect in the state. Shows good knee bend and moves on the edge.

Tom Lemming; Needs to fill out, he looks thin at 260 but possesses the long arms and athleticism the college scouts love to see. A prototypical pass protector, he proves to be very difficult to get around because of his quick feet and mobility. Very smooth in his lateral movement, he shows quick hands and an aggressive temperament. Needs to become more consistent but I project him to be even better in college than he is in high school
