2020 Recruiting Capsule: Southfield A&T DT Bryce Austin

Bryce Austin

Name: Bryce Austin
Height:
6’2″
Weight:
260 lbs.
High school:
Southfield (MI) A&T
Position:
Defensive tackle
Class:
2020
Offers: Akron, Ball State, Boston College, Buffalo, Indiana, Iowa State, Kent State, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Missouri, Pitt, Purdue, Rutgers, Syracuse
Commitment: 
Undecided

Notes: Claims a 4.7 forty…315 lb. bench press…455 lb. squat…27″ vertical…Teammate of 2020 QB Anthony Romphf…247 Sports 3-star, #23 DT, #10 in-state, #320 overall as of 2/7/19

Stats: N/A

Strengths: Above average first step explosiveness…Solid frame to add weight…Good quickness and speed…Changes direction well…Very solid roll tackler…Loose in hips with good bend…Flashes good motor when chasing plays down from behind

Weaknesses: Inconsistent hand strike coming off ball…Can get overpowered at times…Tentative at times when tackling in traffic…Limited height puts a cap on overall mass

Overall: I see a player similar overall to former Michigan defensive end/defensive tackle Jibreel Black. Black was a tweener who played some at both positions, but was never a real standout at either spot. It will be interesting to see how Austin’s body develops, because he could be anywhere from a strongside end to a 3-tech tackle or even a one-gap nose tackle.
