One thing that is for sure. When you play for Encino (Calif.) Crespi at the offensive line position, you are going to be a technically sound football player. That is exactly what Ben Loth (6-5, 29), 5.0).
Luth currently has an offer from UNLV. Nevada is showing a lot of interest and so is Villanova, but don't be surprised if a lot more schools come onto the scene as word gets out on his senior season performance.
"Ben is playing phenomenally for us," Crespi head coach Jeremiah Ross said. "I think he's special and once I send out this next batch to film out colleges, I'm sure there will be a lot more schools showing interest.
"Ben has what D-I schools look for in an offensive lineman and of the intangibles," Ross said. "He has size, quickness and he's smart.
"Another thing that D-I schools are going to like about Ben is, he plays with a nasty attitude," Ross said. "He's a great kid with a lot of upside.
"Ben just needs to develop more," Ross said. "He will do that too, because he has the work ethic. He just needs to get stronger and he will do that once he gets in a college weight lifting program."
Loth is a three-year starter for Crespi and earned second-team all-league honors for his sophomore season. He was a first-team all-league selection for his junior year.
Because of Loth's overall athleticism for a big man, he will also play defensive line for Crespi and play a lot on both sides of the ball.
Loth runs a 4.75 shuttle, which is pretty good for a young man his size.
Loth is another player to keep an eye on.
