TJ McMillen, SO, 6’4 245

School: St Francis

Position: DL/OL

Offers: Syracuse & Central Michigan

Evaluation: 

If you don’t know the name TJ McMillen yet, you soon will. He’s the son of St. Francis Head coach & arena football league legend Bob McMillen. The 6’3, 245-pound sophomore to be was a star last year on Wheaton St. Francis’ varsity squad. He was named All-Conference and All-Area as a Freshman! McMillen combines a tremendous first step, with shear strength to cause problems for offensive lineman. TJ is a high motor kid who often chases down plays from the backside once the ball is handed off. He moved around quite a bit in 2019, playing inside as a three-technique, a stand-up rush outside linebacker, but mainly as a defensive end on the outside. McMillen has great bend, which he often uses to dip low in his rip move to get past tackles. On the offensive side, he lined up as a center and just buried interior defensive lineman. He plays with good hand placement and finishes through the whistle. Bottom-line, this kid is a major Division 1 prospect. With his frame and ability, I think he’ll be one
