Meet the new Longhorns: Texas stashes Junior Angilau away for future

Posted December 20th, 2017


Junior Angilau, Salt Lake City East (Utah)

FYI: 6-6/297; 4 stars;

Fabulous 55 ranking: N/A


Committed: Dec. 11

Scouting report: Angilau is a big-bodied offensive tackle with a wide wingspan and solid feet. He’s a true offensive tackle prospect because of his sheer size and experience at the position. Angilau is a skilled pass rusher and shows a great punch and quick hands when blocking edge rushers. Like most high school offensive lineman, he must improve his flexibility and add strength to his frame.

He also a bully in the running game and Texas needs more offensive linemen with nasty streaks. Angilau finishes blocks with authority and can handle big defensive linemen in 1-on-1 situations at the point of attack. His athleticism also allows him to get to the second-level in the run game, and help as a pulling blocker on outside runs or in the screen game.

It’s hard to ask prep offensive linemen to make an immediate impact at the college level because of the difference in size and speed of collegiate defenders. It might not matter for Angilau, who could take a two-year LDS mission, meaning he won’t arrive on campus until the 2020 football season.
