Sunshine State First Look 2011:  The OL

The 2010 class is now behind us and SunStateFootball.com brings you an early look at some of the players for the 2011 class, continuing today with the OL.

OFFENSIVE LINE

Coutrysides' Tyler Moore(6'5, 275) has made an early commitment to Nebraska, the talented tackle headlines what appears to be a deep group in the trenches. Royal Palm Beach's Van Davis(6'6, 265) oozes potential with his athletic gifts, he will be one to watch develop over the Spring. A similar player resides right up in the road at Fort Pierce Central, Giorgio Newberry, like Davis, he is a long athlete who has a high ceiling. Plant City's Jordan Prestwood(6'5,255) plays TE, but projects to OT, he has the frame to carry the weight and the feet to be special.

Central Florida has a number of outstanding looking prospects, Boone's Max Lang(6'5, 270) and Lake Gibson's Errin Joe(6'5, 270) sport FSU offers already and are sure to attract BCS interest. Tarpon Springs Zach DeBell has a 6'6 frame to work with, he needs to add size. Tony Posada(6'4, 280) won a state title at Tampa Plant, he got a lot of reps in a collegiate type offense.

Heading down to South Florida, Norland's Pierre Maignan(6'5, 250) heads the class and has a lot of tools to work with. Dillard's Dwyane Montgomery(6'4, 255), South Browards Scott Boyett(6'6, 280), and Coral Gables Mike Roland(6'4, 250) all should establish themselves in the Spring.

Vero Beach's Marcus Jackson is committed to Miami, the 6'3 mauler has the makings of big time guard. Park Vista's Cody Preble(6'4, 285) has made an early pledge to Wake Forest, he was busy opening holes with Mike Matulis for Trey Mason last year. Florida State locked up Deland's Trey Pettis(6'4, 280)early, he plays OT but will slide inside most likely for the Seminoles. Gulf Coast's Anthony Spano(6'2, 280) looks to be one of the top Center prospects in the state, he has a terrific blend of smarts, size, and strength. Mainland's Garrett Clark(6'4, 280) can play guard or tackle, he will anchor a strong offensive line in 2010.

Bobby Hart(6'4, 280) is now at St. Thomas, he is very young for his grade year, he appears to have a lot of upside down the road. A pair of Dade County players should attract plenty of attention, Northwestern's Terrence Carey(6'4, 290) and Central's Marquis Lucas(6'3, 290), both play in wide open spread attacks that also have strong running games. Gainesville Buchholz's Ryan Thomas(6'4, 265) and Jacsonville Ed White's Kaleb Johnson(6'5, 280) headline a deep group in North/Northeast Florida.

Other standouts from across the state are Hillsborough's Andre Gunn(6'2, 280), Hollywood Hill's Jared Maldonado(6'3, 265), Booker's Casey Gross(6'2, 260), and Western's Russell Haughton-Jones(6'2, 260).
