One of the newest names in Stanford offensive line recruiting is Sam Schwartzstein, the 6'3.5" 270-pound guard prospect from three-time defending state champion Southlake (Tex.) Carroll High School. Schwartzstein has eight scholarship offers currently to his name, including Purdue, Colorado State and one from the Cardinal in early June. Today we present video highlights from his junior season.

"Sam Schwartzstein uses position and leverage to make the plays on the field," says Texas recruiting analyst Alan Zepeda.  "From his highlights you see several things that make you like him.  First, he is quick on the attack and gets his hands inside the defender; he has enough pop in his hands and arms to not only control the defender but at times to knock him down.  By getting his arms on the defender first he gets the initial contact and the ability to control the situation.  Second, he is aggressive in nature and will follow the defender downfield and look for a second block up field, a skill most high schoolers lack.  He has good footwork, as you can see him sliding rather effortlessly to keep himself between the quarterback and the defender."

"He is a highly developed tackle prospect who could contribute immediately, though as most offensive linemen he could use the freshman year to grow and adjust to the speed and size you see in college football," Zepeda adds.  "Overall he is a very good offensive line prospect who plays smart, intelligent football.  He will not make silly penalties and he does a lot of the little things you want in a lineman."

Check out these three minutes of video highlights from Schwartzstein's junior season at Southlake (Tex.) Carroll High School.  Though he is an offensive guard prospect at the college level, you will find Schwartzstein (#78) playing in a two-point stance at left tackle on the Dragons' offensive line.
