The Northeast Florida region features several of the state’s top prospects at a variety of positions across the board. With the season underway, Six Star Football is taking an inside look at the prospects college programs are looking at this season.
Here, Six Star Football takes a look at several OL prospects to know in the 2021 class in the North Central area.
Dawson Chitwood, 6’5, 300, OL, 2021, Suwannee @ChitwoodDawson
A very impressive OL that is on the rise and becoming one of those highly touted big men to know for Suwanee. At 6-5, 300-pounds, Chitwood holds that couple extra inches to his frame that really makes the difference, a guy that has a clear advantage in many one-on-one situations and has the overall make-up and force next level programs look for in a lineman Dawson is a player that has a tremendous work ethic and is a player that is able to pick up multiple blocks on plays, although still flying under the radar at this point.
Eli Davis, 6’3, 280, T 2021, Williston @eli5803
Davis is a solid prospect in the 2021 class who look strong both as a tackle and a guard. He has a good upside as an offensive lineman and has good size at 6’3, 280-pounds and shows good in-game quickness and the ability to find linebackers in open space and take them off their feet when a ball carrier is coming towards his side of the field or direction. He can back up opponents and then shift directions and find someone else to block. A solid prospect overall with a lot of intangibles and a versatility and toughness doing that stands out. Davis has received some Ivy League interest which included a visit to Princeton. He currently holds an offer from Warner University. Davis is also an intelligent student athlete who reports a 4.2 GPA.
Alex Brown, 6’3, 295, OL, 2021, Trenton @A_brown65
Big size and power is a major plus for this 6-3, 295 bull up front for Trenton, a senior that we think should get some looks with that size element being a good factor. Brown is a two-way big man that has proven he has some very impressive skills at getting under the defenders pads and finishing the play, often taking opponents to the ground. A good OL that goes until the whistle blows and can back opponents down and use his frame to his advantage. Brown is also a standout in the classroom, reporting a 3.8 GPA. Brown currently holds offers from Monmouth College and Whittier College.
Levontre Daniels, 6’4, 315, OL, 2021, Bradford @DanielsLevontre
Daniels has a lot of intriguing assets to his game as a big man for Bradford. He has good size for the next level at 6-4, 315 and he holds his weight and still has speed and mobility. Daniels does a nice job looking for and making extra blocks on his plays, keeping his head up and using his vision to make key blocks and find and make gaps for his runners. Daniels recently announced his commitment to play football for Florida International University. Before announcing his decision he held offers from Valdosta State, Faulkner and Notre Dame College.
Gabriel Hecht, 6’6, 265, OL, 2021, Orange Park
At 6-6, 265-pounds, Hecht has the size that colleges love to see and has a body that could pack on more weight if needed for the next level. A player that proves very difficult to get past, his leverage can be too much to handle for smaller defenders. Hecht is almost always the bigger and taller man and he uses his size and hands very well to seal the edge for Orange Park. A solid O-Line prospect.
Jordan McGill, 6’5, 260, OL, 2021, Clay @JordanM0823
Another very talented big man from Clay, 6-5, 260-pound McGill has the kind of size and skill that colleges like to look for in a player at his position. A player that can use both his explosive power and physical style of play to blast defenders on inside running lanes. He also has good hands on the outside edge to stand up the defender and take away their momentum. McGill moves well left to right, can help and assist on blocks well and deliver some major power and pop on his blocks. He currently holds offers from St. Thomas University, King’s College and Methodist University.
Christopher Phillips, 6’0, 285, OL, 2021, PK Yonge @TheGreatCj
Coming off a 60 pancake season for 2019, Phillips is a solid OL prospect to keep your eyes on. He uses his 285 pounds to his advantage and does a very nice job of getting his hands on the defender quickly and finishing off his blocks. Phillips is a player that has good hands andis able to show he can excel at standing up defenders as well. One of those underrated looking prospects, despite being 6’0 has some power and ability to take some notice of for sure. Phillips is a standout in the weight room and reports a 305 bench, a 475 squat and a 385 deadlift.
Tylan Roundtree, 6’4, 260, OL/DL, 2021, St Francis @roundtree_tylan
We like Roundtree as one of the well rounded looking athletes, not just another big guy that blocks, but a very good natural athlete that has a tall frame at 6-4, 260 that could pack on more weight and still remain a very fine athlete that moves very well up front. Roundtree sees action on both sides of the ball and he has potential on both sides as well. A strong and versatile player who has good speed, overall strength and the athleticism needed to make plays on both ends. Also a strong player in the weight room who reports a 315 bench and a 455 squat. He also has a 3.0 GPA.
Evan Sheets, 6’2, 280, OL, 2021, Fleming Island @EvanSheets75
A big and bruising player at 6-2, 280-pounds who loves to get dirty and physical. Sheets is a player that can wear you down and dominate up front for Fleming Island. He has good size and a high IQ on and off the field as well, reporting a 3.8 GPA and a 1020 SAT score. He has good power and can push opponents off their mark and get key blocks, showcasing his smart hand use. An intelligent player who has good strength and the skills and tools to work with moving forward. He has been offered from Huntingdon College.
Landon Weatherford, 6’2, 280, OL, 2021, Chiefland @LandonWeatherf1
Mixes it up very well, a tough and physical big man at 6’1, 275-pounds. He is a rough and powerful player for Chiefland that shines in the areas of power and strength. A guy that can dominate and wear down the man across the line from him. An underrated player who continues to push himself and looks to find a way to push and pull opponents out of the way and can open things up for the uen game.
Zack Williams, 6’1, 245, OL, 2021, Orange Park @ZoomZackery
Might not be a huge body guy but still a solid 245 pounds up front for Orange Park. Williams is putting in work at right guard this season for Orange Park and is a strong, physical lineman that will do whatever is takes to get his man to the ground. A hard-working player who is good at using his hands in a very physical way and can outsmart and over-power the opponents he’s matched up with. He shows solid speed and footwork for his frame and has a solid combination of power and strength after the snap.
