In-depth look into some of the top DL from the National Preps Showcase at Arizona Christian. 

Aidan Herring, 2023, Perry

Good athlete off the edge at 6’3 230 lbs. Plays with good bend, leverage, and pad level. He’s strong and powerful at the contact point with a great nose for the football. He’s relentless in pursuit and is smart with his attack angles to put himself in position to make a play. Has the frame, talent, and ability to transition well to a LB at the college level depending on development. Looking to build on a strong sophomore campaign.

Ideal size and frame to build on at 6’5” 210 lbs. Great length with a 78 inch wingspan and was one of the top testers in the position group. He’s a plus athlete that excels as a pass rusher where he can use his quick and explosive first step off the ball to beat blockers off the edge. Strong in pursuit, he has good speed and lateral mobility to chase down ball carriers sideline to sideline. Good upside and potential.

Kymani Lautaimi, 2023, West (UT)

Strong build at 6’0” 242 lbs. He’s fast off
