What do you guys think is he a 3* or 4 *

He has the potential to be a great prospect, that's for sure.
11 National Titles | 42 Conference Titles | 3 Heisman Winners | 78 All-Americans | 37 College Hall of Fame Members
He has size and athleticism, but is a very raw prospect. That's just fine considering the OL classes ahead of him. Shouldn't even see the field his first 2 years IMO, plenty of time to get coached up.
5*, consensus no. 1 player in the country. In fact, his ceiling is so high he should be awarded a sixth star.
Since there is no film available for him I consider him a UM commit and that's the only ranking that matters. Any star rating at this point would be pretty meaningless.
That's true, but we'll probably all end up shitting on each other if he's lower than a 4*.
I obviously haven't seen tape on him, but I've heard it's put together and he looks dominant. Knowing that, his athleticism w/ basketball, his height and his frame, I definitely think he should be a top-250 (solid 4*) recruit. Again, people tend to forget the rankings are projections rather than current ability. A 6'9" athletic OL sounds to me like he oozes potential.
Can't wait to see his tape.
Think he's a 3* because he is still raw as others have said. He has a huge amount of potential if he gets it though.
No tape, but I think it all depends on his feet with that kind of height. It's easy to get out of position with that kind of length against an edge rusher at which point all that advantage becomes a liability. If he can move his feet well coaching could make him a great player IMO.
as of right now I'd say middling 3* because of how raw he is as he's only played football a couple years. He is 6'9 295 though with very good athletisicm. He is definetly a high risk/high reward kid but our coaches can afford to take a shot on an OL like that now with the guys they've brought in.
Raw as hell 3*. If he is able to get better fundamentals over the offseason, I can see a jump to 4* status. But I think he stays at 3*.
No idea because we have not seen film yet.
A default high 3*, that will be moved to 4* once the hype hits, and he gets offers from all the powers....along with Senior video
I was hoping his film was out and you were asking how good we thought he looked on his film. Im anxious to see him in action, so much untapped speculative potential with this recruit.
Seeing as he was a good basketball prospect, he probably isn't quite as raw as many as you think. I think his senior film will surprise some of you.

hopefully some film will be out before long.
I am with you on this. Not sure how much coaching most kids get before their junior or senior years in HS and then it's still suspect at a lot of High Schools. The kid is just a junior this year and still has one more year of High School ball before he even gets to Michigan.
