Few players out West have seen their stocks rise as much in the last few weeks as Portland (Ore.) Grant defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh. The big tackle first caught our eye a few months back when his tape found its way in to our office. Two Nike Camp later, Suh is one of the hottest prospects in the region.
At 6-3.5, 278 pounds, Suh is built like a house and has a college body right now. He was one of the top defensive linemen at the recent Nike Camp at Stanford after also attending the camp at Texas A&M that was rained out. He did 24 reps on the bench and scratched his 40 time that would have been one of the best in the camp among the linemen had he decided to keep it.
On film, Suh oozes potential because of his size and athleticism. We wrote back in April that Suh is still learning the game and looks very raw on film but is able to compensate because of his sheer size and ability. He's a high motor player who doesn't take plays off and when you combine his work ethic with his natural gifts, it's easy to see why the lineman is up to almost double digits in scholarship offers.
"I have offers from Oregon, Arizona State, Oregon State, Duke, Nebraska, Washington, Washington State, Cal and Miami," Suh said. "I like Miami, Nebraska and Michigan right now but I'm open to a lot of schools still. I'll take my trips and then make my decision later in the year."
Suh currently plays defensive end but could easily make the move to tackle in college. On film, he actually plays better on the edge because he sometimes plays too high at tackle but that still could be his best college position once he gets coached up.
