Part 2 of Winter is coming brings me to the defensive linemen. Focusing on the hardworking young men grinding every day to be the best they can be for the spring season. These gentlemen I have seen at showcases, spoke with on twitter, or just found them in my Hudl viewing. Excited to see what the winter has in store for them in getting Bigger, Faster, and Stronger.

Jireh is a confident all-around talent that welcomes all opponents for a challenge. I have seen him up close, watch him interact with other players, and the effect he has on them. He brings attitude to the game coaches look for in their lockerroom. Has a quick first step, strong explosive hands, and can rush in or outside when you want to call your stunts on the line. He shows out at all the showcases he attends versus the best competition the state of Illinois offers. He is the #2 ranked DT in the State Class of 2022, and Power 5 Schools are going to be knocking.
