Recruiting Battle to Watch

In this week’s Recruiting Battle, we’re going to the trenches to take a look at a 2022 offensive tackle prospect that already has several MAC offers. Ethan Green, a 6’7”, 255 lbs. tackle out of Fremont Ross High School in Ohio, currently has six offers, including ones from Akron, Bowling Green, EMU, Miami, and Toledo.

The First Team All-Ohio honoree has some good strength and athleticism for his size, as you can see on his Hudl film below. He does a good job at finishing blocks, but he needs to add weight and have more polished footwork to be successful at the next level. His frame certainly makes him an intriguing prospect in this class.

Fire Recruiting Graphic of the Week

For this week’s Graphic of the Week, Buffalo has a strong entry paying homage to New York. I really like the contrast of the color images of UB and the black and white of Times Square; just a really nice touch. As always, feel free to submit nominees for Graphic of the Week to @MAC__Crootin.
