I think a few months ago the issue of recruiting bigger linemen was discussed on CR. It was the opinion of several Cactus Ranchers that the diet in the south was conducive to creating bigger young men than the diet in the West. Might be something to this theory.
Of their 28 recruits 21 were from the south (incl 1 from TX and LA). Seven were from outside the south including Chicago, Baltimore, DC,
NJ (2), Baltimore (2) & Hyattsville, MD.
Alabama had NO recruits west of TX and LA.
Alabama took five DB’s – all over six feet and 185 lbs.
ASU took two DB’s: 1 @ 5’10” – 167 (4 star) and 6’1” – 178.
Alabama’s DT: 6’4” – 285; 6’5” – 280; 6’3” - 320
ASU had NO DT listed in their class
Alabama had four DE’s: 6’4” – 280; 6’5” – 261; 6’4” – 218; 5’5” - 215
ASU had two DE’s: 6’3” – 260 (4 star); 6’6” – 235.
Alabama’s OL recruits from southern states were:
6’7” – 360; 6’6” – 300; 2 @ 6’5” – 270. Also, one OL from Baltimore: 6’3” – 290.
ASU OL recruits: 6’3” – 285; 6’6” – 285; 6’4” – 271; 6’5” – 282;
and 6’8”- 235
So, it’s evident that the Alabama linemen recruits in the south are bigger than our boys, but we are getting larger as well.
Another factor creeps into the mix: ASU had three 4 star recruits.
Alabama had three five star recruits and 22 four star recruits.
BTW: Clemson had 21 southern recruits in their 2019 class. Also, they had the number 5 WR from Folsom, CA – 6’4” – 210. They had two five stars; 12 four stars, and 13 three stars.

Question: What do DE’s end up as they are lighter than other linemen?
