At 6'5" 240# he sure can run around, his blocking on the 2nd level in the highlights looked good. Does it look like he'll be able to grow into a B1G sized tackle? I realize that he's only going to be a junior (and thus is 15-17 years old) but we've had a lot of BIG O-line recruits recently.
Revision of An Interview With Tommy Doles from June 28th, 2012 at 2:04 PM
Yesterday's big recruiting news was the commitment of Drake Harris to Michigan State, but Harris isn't the only Grand Rapids Christian prospect drawing attention in the 2014 class. Offensive lineman Tommy Doles participated in Michigan's camp and subsequently earned his first scholarship offer from the Wolverines last week. Doles stands at 6'5", 240 pounds—up from his sophomore playing weight of 220 lbs.—and he's been a presence on the summer camp circuit, also spending time at Michigan State and Notre Dame. I caught up with Doles today to discuss his recruitment, Michigan's camp, and getting his first offer:
ACE: Which schools are currently in contact with you right now?
I like this kid, I think he has a good head on his shoulders. If he really is looking for great academics then Michigan should have a great shot to land him!
will be recruiting him hard for MSU. I don't like our chances.
I don't know...he speaks pretty intelligently, so I don't think he would be a good fit there.
Does MSU even recruit linemen anymore?
Only if they've been in trouble with the law.
I like this kid's film. He seems to play bigger than 240, of course he's standing among other HS kids, but I like his motor and keeps playing to the whistle.
I wonder if he owns a bicycle?
