The Ohio pipeline continues to flow blue as Mark Stoops received his 6th commitment from the Buckeye State this morning. The #16 OG in the country is a monster on the right side of the center. LaRubbio saw the power of #BBN firsthand at the Spring game, making it easy for Vince Marrow to make another great recruiting move in Ohio.This addition moves Kentucky’s 2014 class to #16 in the country, 7th in the SEC just behind Ole Miss.
After watching some of his film I’m sure his favorite food is pancakes (my favorite pancake on his highlight reel comes at the :56 mark). Attacking defenders with sheer size is impressive to watch, but his quick first step sets him apart from other great offensive linemen. High School players often ‘let up’ on the offensive line when a play is ran to the other side, but LaRubbio has a good head on his shoulders and doesn’t stop until the whistle is blown, regardless of whether the play is going his way. His Lakota East High School team is an option run-based team, giving him more responsibilities at OG than a normal spread/pro-style offense. The QB bases much of his decision making in the option off of the OG’s play; if he doesn’t create a hole immediately the play could be a bust. LaRubbio’s experience thus far has turned him into an attacking lineman that will only do good things for UK in the future.
