BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign and named an All-American the past two years.
POSITIVES: Smart, tough blocker with outstanding feel for the position. Intelligent, makes good use of angles, and a terrific position blocker who seals defenders from the action. Strong, stays square, and effectively fights with his hands. Pushes defenders off the ball and plays with a nasty attitude.
NEGATIVES: Lacks footwork and blocking range and he.s at his best in a small area. Exploited by speedy, nimble opponents. Not effective on the move or off the line.
ANALYSIS: Rinehart has been a durable and productive blocker on the small-school level. Possesses the smarts and size to eventually develop into a guard at the next level.
