Mel Tucker had been heavy on the recruiting trail, offering many players before and even during the COVID-19 outbreak. There was a common trend with offensive linemen: they were all huge prospects.
Justin Stevens fits the bill himself at 6-foot-6 and 285 pounds.
Tucker knows the game is won in the trenches and while it’s awesome to hit on a Jack Conklin type, it’s extremely difficult to get that lucky.
Stevens was a three-star player from Clarkson Football North in Mississauga, Ontario. He’s athletic and already has plenty of size. This will key because Tucker wants to run the football and he’s going to need some big hog-mollies to blast open holes for his running backs.
