BIO: Three year starter who saw limited action as a freshman. Outstanding student with a 3.30 GPA.
POSITIVES: Tough, intelligent blocker best in confined quarters. Quick off the snap, immediately gets his hands up and controls opponents once engaged at the point. Blocks with good lean, battles throughout the action and turns defenders off the line. Solid position blocker who seals opponents from the action. Immediately picks up stunts thrown by opponents, works well with teammates and hits several defenders during a single snap. Effective with the shotgun snap.
NEGATIVES: Not light on his feet, lumbers around the field and cannot redirect to linebackers on the second level. Has trouble sliding laterally and late getting to the spot on blitz pick-ups.
ANALYSIS: A durable and competitive blocker on the pivot, Ghiaciuc is a potential backup at the next level. Offers growth potential yet the inability to play in space limits the number of schemes he will be effective in.
