BYU's offensive line hit the jackpot on the recruiting trail.
Kieffer Longson, a three-star offensive tackle from Dougherty Valley High School in San Ramon, CA drew interest from schools such as California, Arizona State, Colorado, and Floridia State while receiving offers from Ohio State, BYU, UCLA, and Utah. Today, Longson announced his decision on Twitter:
I would like to thank my family, friends and coaches who have made a difference in my life. I am committing to BYU! pic.twitter.com/XmVHhDMspD— Mt.stormingmormon74 (@kieffer74) December 15, 2014
The 6-7, 300 lb senior tackle was given a 247sports Composite rating of three stars and is listed as one of the top 35 guards in the country on both the 247sports Composite and 247sports' own rating. As you can see from the video highlights below, Longson is a big kid that can push the line and isn't afraid to get physical. On many occasions, he knocks one player over and goes after another, and then another.
Longson should fit in well with the Robert Anae- and Garett Tujague-led offensive line as he seems to have a bit of nasty in his game. He doesn't shy away from contact. Depending on his mission plans, he could find a way to work his way into the line-up as soon as he can get the playbook down.
