Manasquan, N.J. offensive tackle Art Forst is up to 10 scholarship offers. Rivals.com caught up with the 6-foot-8, 288-pounder's assistant coach Pete Cahill to get the lowdown on his star lineman.
"Art is an extremely hard worker that wants to be really good in the weight room," he said. "He's working all year long trying to be a leader there and gets other players to step up too. He had a real nice junior season and next year needs to be a leader on the offensive line for us."
Obviously the Rivals100 to watch prospect is talented, but what does he need to work on?

"He has only been playing football three years," he said. "He's an extremely hard worker, he just has to work on the little things and he'll have a real bright future ahead of him. The strength is there and he is getting quicker."
Off the field, Cahill spoke very highly of his prospect.
"He is one of the most mature football players we've come across here," he said. "He's a hardworker and is a solid student with around a 90% GPA. There's not a whole lot wrong with him there."
Meanwhile, the Manasquan assistant claims there are a few more offers in hand.
"He's got ones from Boston College, Clemson, Duke, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Rutgers, Virginia, Maryland and Syracuse," he said. "He doesn't really lead on where he is leaning. He does consult a lot with his father about what he wants to do though."
While Forst is getting most of the attention, Cahilll confirms he isn't the only prospect at the Garden State school.
"We've got a 6-foot-5, 265-pound lineman, Travis Fink that has to develop and get a little stronger and quicker," he said. "He was hurt a little bit last year, but he's big and is looking to have a good senior year.
"He's another hard worker that picks things up quickly and is willing to learn. He's also a good student."
Fink is receiving interest from a few schools including Delaware, Hofstra and Virginia.
Leading the offensive charge is 5-foot-7, 195-pound running back Charles Coursey.
"Charles is a real hard runner that is tough to bring down because he's got such a low center of gravity," he said. "Last year he averaged almost 10-yards per carry and has some good speed. He's working on getting faster and is a hard worker and great kid off the field."
Although he ran for 1,000 yards and 13 touchdowns, Cahill confirmed he is under the radar at this time.
