On the first full day of on-field action we took a deep hard look at the linemen here at FBU Top Gun in Dublin, Ohio. The battles were fierce as the offensive and defensive linemen competed in head to head action on various fields at picturesque Dublin Jerome High School. After the offensive linemen worked on proper blocking technique and the defensive linemen worked on using their hands, the men in the trenches faced off. There were dozens of standouts in the class of 2020, but five linemen have really impressed early at Top Gun.
Hunter Shanks – Lake Oswego, Oregon
The massive offensive lineman was selected as an FBU All-American last season and has only improved since we last saw him in person. After growing “3 or 4” inches since December, Shanks is starting to look like a big time offensive line prospect as he enters the 8th grade.
Bryan Felter – Westfield, New Jersey
Physically strong and overpowering most of the defensive linemen he lined up against, Felter showed why he was an FBU All-American last year. Near flawless technique made him a pleasure to watch as he stood up pass rushing defensive ends with ease.
Garrett Blalock – Lorena, Texas
Blalock is a big load in the middle of the defensive line and made his presence known. He showed a quick and powerful first step and ultimately dominated with bulrush moves. His biggest asset proved to be his strength, as he threw the offensive linemen he was lined up from down to the turf numerous times.
Hunter Kaupiko – Honolulu, Hawaii
Kaupiko was an FBU All-American two years ago as a 6th grader and now as he enters 8th grade he has continued to improve. He was a vicious pass rusher from the edge and displayed the best rip move at the camp. Kaupiko plays mean and I’m looking forward to seeing him in action for the duration of camp.
Jackson Ramey – Hoschton, Georgia
Ramey is a big, strong athlete that has started to develop nicely over this off-season and is putting all together at Top Gun. He has all the physical tools to be a next level football player and is getting the technique training he needs from the FBU coaches here at Top Gun.
