Meet one of the best lineman prospects in the junior class, Wes Hine, Hine is a player that is already getting some big time attention from schools like Kentucky, Cincinnati, and Iowa. His size and athletic ability, toughness and pure physical nature on the position make him a player that is on the radar of several big time programs across the country and a player that will no doubt gain attention as his senior season approaches.
