|Tony Posada looks like a Michigan lineman|
Name: Tony Posada
Weight: 315 lbs.
High school: Plant High School in Tampa, FL
Jersey number: #79
Last year: Posada was a high school senior (commitment post here)
TTB Rating: Incomplete, due to lack of film
I never got a great feel for Posada because film on him was scarce. He's looked a little soft in the body in virtually every picture I've seen, and most 300+ pounders in high school have some work to do on their conditioning. As for his technique, footwork, and athleticism, well, that's anyone's guess right now. I'll reserve judgment. However, I was impressed with former Michigan offensive line coach Greg Frey's ability to scout and develop offensive linemen, so I do have some faith that Posada will at least be serviceable.
But it's usually a safe bet for true freshman linemen to redshirt, and I don't expect anything different from Posada. Offensive guard is a deep position group on this unit, so he can take his time to learn the position. In fact, I wouldn't expect to see him compete for playing time until at least 2013.
