Fort Bend (Texas) Christian offensive lineman Remington Strickland has been one of the hottest prospects in the country as of late when it comes to picking up offers. Now, the 6-foot-4, 292-pound senior is on the Texas A&M commitment list.
The Aggies offered Strickland in mid-November as they liked his senior film a lot. He took an unofficial visit to College Station later in the month where he took a self-guided tour. He was not allowed to meet with the coaches, per NCAA rules, but the trip helped cement Texas A&M as his future destination.
247Sports regional analyst Gabe Brooks has the following breakdown of Strickland’s game. Brooks makes the comparison to Duke center Jack Wohlabaugh.
“Owns adequate size for P5 interior offensive line prospect. Remade his physical build during the course of high school career. Ample experience at tackle but projects guard-to-guard. Physical, sometimes violent blocker in the run game. Plays with a mean streak. Generally keeps feet pumping on contact. Looks to finish blocks with authority. Flashes impressive punch power at the second level. Moves pretty well in space in those second-level assignments. Plays with adequate lateral foot quickness. Two-way player who shows similar physicality on the defensive line.
“Shot put and discus experience appears limited but adds a bit of context to athletic profile. Leverage is generally good, but occasionally gets out over his feet. Will need to transfer run-game punch to pass-pro more consistently. Can improve balance and body control when engaged. Faces significant jump in competition going from small private school football to the high-major level. Has not faced anything close to that size-strength-speed so may need time to acclimate. One of the top interior offensive line prospects in Texas for the 2021 recruiting cycle. Projects to the high-major level with potential to become multi-year starter.”
