RANSOM MCDERMOTT - OFFENSIVE TACKLE
ON3 Industry Comparison (Lists all recruiting rankings)
OFFERS: WVU, IU, UK, BC, Cincy,
Louisville landed a tall and long tackle out of Indiana last year in Luke Burgess and McDermott is very similar in a few ways. Their size is the obvious comparison but it also jumps out on film that McDermott is big on technique. His kick step in pass protection is great and his ability to get his hips underneath him when run blocking is very good at 6-7/270.
The obvious issue for McDermott is his weight but he will have time to put on pounds once he gets to campus. Louisville is building a nice foundation of young offensive linemen who could grow and develop into contributors if they are willing to stick around as Jeff Brohm utilizes the portal to replenish the top of the depth chart for another year.
