Diamond in the Rough: Jack Endean

Jack Endean is a 3⭐ offensive tackle out of Tanque Verde High School in Tucson, Arizona. According to 247 Sports, he is the #17 prospect in Arizona and the #94 tackle in the country from the class of 2023.  He stands at 6”6’ 280-Pounds and is currently committed to Oklahoma State.

He has a lot of drive and holds his blocks extremely well and is willing and able to follow his blocks all the way down the field until the echo of the whistle. His hip placement and footwork in pass-blocking sets are beyond his years and all of his techniques are very fluid throughout the entirety of his game. Despite his mechanics and IQ being very high the brightest aspect of Endeans game is his mental drive and willingness to compete play in and play out.
