Recruiting Battle to Watch

In this week’s Battle, we’re taking a gander at a huge OT/DL prospect of Tampa that is garnering some buzz in the MAC. Cole Essek, a 6’7”, 250-pounder from Tampa Catholic, currently holds seven offers, including ones from Bowling Green, Eastern Michigan, and Toledo. As you can see in his Hudl film, Essek is really raw but he moves well for his size and has decent strength. If he’s able to add muscle and really work on honing his technique, he’s going to have an opportunity to play a lot at the next level.

Fire Recruiting Graphic of the Week

In this week’s Graphic(s), Ohio put together a series of strong images to help with recruiting. The Bobcats created some clean images that accentuated some of the highlights of their program; a really solid job overall. As always, feel free to submit nominees for Graphic of the Week to @MAC__Crootin.
