Final TTB Rating: 87
Magnuson is a highly touted offensive tackle out of California, and some people even made a comparison to Jake Long. Maybe it's the fact that Magnuson wore #77, but regardless, he is a much hyped recruit. At the beginning of January, he played left guard in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, and while he wasn't as stellar as classmate Kyle Kalis, he did look adequate with the change of position.
Coming into college, Magnuson needs a fair amount of polish and he needs to get stronger. In a regular year, he would probably be a lock to redshirt. However, needs on the offensive line might mandate some playing time. He looks like a future left tackle, although that's a position with a lot of responsibility for a freshman. We might see him at right tackle or guard if the situation arises, but hopefully he can spend a year refining technique and adding mass.
Prediction: Redshirt if possible
