It was offensive tackle weekend at LSU as Ed Orgeron added two players at the position to his class of 2022 recruits. Orgeron knows the value that comes with a pair of bookend tackles keeping his quarterback upright and he will be hoping that in Will Campbell and Bo Bordelon he has a couple of linemen that will be multiple-year starters on his offensive line.
Campbell was the first of the two players to commit over the weekend and the Nevile (Monroe, LA) High School standout is a 4-star prospect per the 247Sports Composite Rankings. He is the No. 56 player in the nation, the No. 6 offensive tackle, and the No. 2 player in the state of Louisiana in the class.
At 6-foot-6 and 285 pounds, Campbell is almost the size of a prototypical college tackle before he has stopped growing and before hitting a college weight program. The video shows that Campbell is a nasty blocker with a chip on his shoulder who will drive block a defender right out of the play. He is adept at getting to the second level and his length and reach mean that it is game over for a defensive lineman as soon as he gets position.
Bordelon committed the day after Campbell and he is a 3-star prospect at the offensive tackle position. He is rated by the composite as the No. 709 player in the class, the No. 68 offensive tackle, and the No. 32 player in the state of Louisiana. The Isidore Newman (New Orleans, LA) prospect has the height at 6-foot-5, but will have to add weight to his current 250-pound frame to be a starter for the Tigers. The video shows that Bordelon is an outstanding run blocker who uses leverage to drive defenders all the way into the defensive backfield as a common occurrence. Also – and like Campbell – Bordelon does an outstanding job of finishing his blocks.
