A rule of thumb in recruiting offensive linemen is to always look in the Midwest.  The 2022 class might be the deepest crop in the history of the state.  Below is part 2 of our analysis on offensive tackles in Indiana.

 

Tyson Miller Tyson Miller 6'6" | OL Lafayette Jefferson | 2022 State IN - 6’6” 265- Lafayette Jefferson

Miller brings an athletic frame to the table and excels when used as a puller.  He creates wide running lanes when down blocking and typically buries his man when out in space with a full head of steam.  He shows good patience in pass pro and waits to deliver his strike rather than lunging at a first move.  Miller can keep improving upon his hand placement, as he tends to get wide at times and can rely often on his size and length rather than technique.  He reports offers from Illinois State and Indiana State.

 

Cooper Koers Cooper Koers 6'6" | OL Cathedral | 2022 State IN - 6’6” 265- Cathedral

Koers is one of the most technically sound tackles in the state, who displays a great level of body control for his size.  His ability to bend and maintain leverage in the run game is phenomenal, not solely relying on size and momentum as many linemen do.
