Meet the Longhorns: O’Connor’s Logan Parr could use a year to transition inside from tackle to guard

What he brings to Texas’ table: Parr has played tackle in high school, but he knows his future is at guard or center because of his lack of length. His time playing on the edge should help him handle the blitzes and better pass rushers at the defensive tackle position. Parr thrives as a run blocker who is athletic enough to pull and get to the second level.

He wants to be great, and football is hugely important to him. That shows in his film as he finishes blocks and fights with his hands at the point of attack. He’ll continue to improve as he gets stronger and builds more muscle. That’s true for 99% of offensive line prospects from high school.

Parr is a technician. It’s tough to play along the line as a freshman. It takes a generational player or a lack of depth. Texas hopes the group doesn’t need prospects straight out of high school to contribute right away. That gives recruits like Parr a redshirt season and an extra year in a college weight program and coaching from offensive line coach Herb Hand.

He said it: “I fit into Texas as an interior guy, being able to play any of the positions up front. Playing at every spot on the line at some point during my high school career has really helped me be a versatile player who can fill in at any position with confidence.” — Parr
