SI Grade
3.15
Position: Class:
4Sr
School: Conference: Ht., Wt.:
6-7.5, 323
40 Time:
5.31

BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference and all-Academic honors in the past.

POSITIVES: VandenHeuvel is a size prospect who can play at the next level if he improves his flexibility and blocking balance.

NEGATIVES: Bends at the waist and overextends into blocks. Struggles in space, and has difficulty handling speed rushers. Lacks footwork and the ability to slide laterally.

ANALYSIS: Massive blocker with a good degree of upside. Quickly gets into blocks, plays with good knee bend, and strong in his upper body. Effectively fights with his hands, steers defenders from the action, and works until the whistle blows. Solid position blocker wide enough to control defenders at the point.

PROJECTION: 7-FA
