Six Star Football takes a look at several prospects making noise early in the season.
With the upcoming season now underway, Six Star Football takes a look at several OL prospects who stood out in the early going.
*Kody Black | 6’4, 285 | OL | 2023 | Melbourne | @black_kody
Six Star Football Florida Showcase standout Kody Black has picked up numerous offers in recent months, including a recent offer from South Florida. A well sized 6-4, 285 rough and physical big man in the senior class from Melbourne High School, Black enters his final season with high expectations and is a big man that has good experience, Black is a three year starter, and a team captain that earned Florida Class 7A All-State honors last season and was named a All-County for the second time last season as well. Among is most recent offers are Whittier College, Culver Stockton, St. Anselm, Arizona Christian, and St. Thomas and Black has 17 offers already.
Jadon Brown | 6’2, 315 | OL | 2023 | American Heritage | @JadonBrown9
Was a standout at left guard for American Heritage in its win over Los Alamitos on Saturday. A big man at 6-2, 315 pounds and a key blocker up front for American Heritage, Brown is a senior that can play either GUard or Center and Tackle. Brown could be the most physical player up front for American Heritage and does a nice job of using his hands to get under the pads and knock his man off the ball, good looking physical player that keeps his feet moving and is an overpowering big man in the trenches to watch out for this season. Good size and power, Brown is a player on the high radar for talent to watch for.
Connor Gilbert | 6’6, 290 | OL | 2024 | Lincoln | @ConnorG31063573 | @Linc_TrojansFB
Six for six and 290 pounds, no question Connor Gilbert from Lincoln High in Tallahassee is a big man on the radar that is a great size prospect and has the length plus frame to be a big college recruit and a tough man to handle in the trenches this year at Lincoln High School, Gilbert has an offer from Alabama State and we think his size will warrant more and more offers this year.
Noah Manderson | 6’4, 310 | OL | 2024 | Osceola | @50noahm
A huge player up front for Osceola this year is junior bigman Noah Manderson, at 6-3, 310 pounds Manderson will look to be one of the big men up front and key movers in the trenches to watch out for this season. Webber International has offered the big man, a player we could see with two years left getting a lot more offers this year with a big junior campaign in the trenches and a player that has the size and work ethic to jump onto the big man key risers list for OL.
Aiden Martinez |6’4, 300 | OL | 2023 | Miami Palmetto | @aidenmartinez55
One of the Miami area senior offensive lineman to have on the radar for this year is up and coming stock riser and Palmetto big man at 6-4, 300 Aiden Martinez, a Guard and Center in the trenches that has improved his footwork more and more and has had a big offseason also. Martinez holds offers from Maryville and Lake Erie and has taken several big time D1 visits also. No doubt a big man on the radar to watch out for this season.
Xzavier McKinney | 6’6, 270 | OL | 2023 | Manatee | @weaponX323 @RecruitManatee @manateefb
Right tackle was a road grader for Manatee in its run game and is one of the top seniors back with a lot of experience that will be a major factor in the offenses success again this upcoming season. McKinney holds offers from Marshall, Stetson and Central Michigan with more likely coming soon with his 6-6 length and 270 pound frame, no doubt McKinney is tough in the trenches and has also a top notch looking frame that a lot of guys just don’t have.
Osten Patterson | 6’5, 240 |OL | 2023 | Miami Killian | @osten1k
A very impressive looking big man coming out of Miami Killian, 6-5, 240 and a good footwork guy and mover in the trenches that is getting more and more well deserved college attention. Pattserson is a player that will be a major leader up front and a key leverage guy at 6-5 that will look to blow up his man across the line for some huge running lanes this year. Visited Florida and FAU is another team on the early radar for this impressive looking senior to watch for this year.
Roman Ruiz | OL | 2024 | Piper | @62_era
A very impressive up and coming junior from Piper High School and one of the big men in the lineup at Guard that is a top big man on the team and one of those pushers of the pile up front that will be key in the running game this year at Piper, no doubt a guy that has a good looking work ethic and play on the field that is tough and physical to take some notice of this season.
