Recruiting Battle to Watch
In this week’s Battle, we’re taking a gander at a huge OT/DL prospect of Tampa that is garnering some buzz in the MAC. Cole Essek, a 6’7”, 250-pounder from Tampa Catholic, currently holds seven offers, including ones from Bowling Green, Eastern Michigan, and Toledo. As you can see in his Hudl film, Essek is really raw but he moves well for his size and has decent strength. If he’s able to add muscle and really work on honing his technique, he’s going to have an opportunity to play a lot at the next level.
