North Allegheny; Wexford, Pa.
Measurements: 6’7, 293 lbs.
Accolades: Consensus four-star recruit; No. 6 player in Pennsylvania, per rivals.com; 22nd at position and 236th in country; U.S. Army All-American
Other Offers Considered: Maryland, Penn State
Projected Position: Offensive tackle
Quick Take: Those aren’t typos. 6-foot-7. 293 pounds. If they are typos, they are not by much. Notre Dame is touting Lugg as 6’6”, 280. His frame appears ready to hold more, at that. His long arms set him up well for pass protection. Do not be surprised to see Lugg continue the recent Irish tradition of top-tier offensive linemen.
Clearwater Central Catholic; Clearwater, Fla.
Measurements: 6’4, 311 lbs.
Accolades: Rivals.com three-star recruit; No. 74 player in Florida, per rivals.com; 56th at position
Other Notable Offers: Michigan State, Mississippi State, Ohio State
Projected Position: Offensive guard
Quick Take: Gibbons very well could be a prototypical Harry Hiestand offensive guard. Already coming in at a good size, some time in a college strength and conditioning program should serve to turn Gibbons into a stout offensive lineman. Just remember the spelling of his first name. That –an ending is bound to trip up some of us in the coming years.
