The Final Cockdown’s offensive line week rolls on! We’re taking the time to appreciate the underappreciated big guys who make room for big runs and clean pockets. If you missed anyone, click below to catch up:
DJ Park | Zack Bailey | Christian Pellage | Alan Knott | Cory Helms | Donell Stanley | Malik Young | Blake Camper | Dennis Daley | Jordon Carty | Eric Douglas | Chandler Farrell | Summie Carlay | Jordan Rhodes
Freshman / 6’7”, 299 / South Broward / Hollywood, FL
As Eric Wolford looks to rebuild the offensive line, one of his targets was Carty, a tackle from the talent-rich Miami/Fort Lauderdale area. While Carty could figure into the rotation in the front five sooner or later, it’s likely that his chance will come in 2018 due to the depth the team has at both tackle positions. Malik Young and Zack Bailey are projected at either side with Sadarius Hutcherson and Blake Camper being listed behind those two on the depth chart; JUCO transfer Dennis Daley is expected to figure into the discussion as well.
Carty is one of two incoming freshmen players from Florida - the other one is Tallahassee cornerback Tavyn Jackson.
2016 Stats: N/A
Recruitment: Three-star; offered by Mississippi State, Oregon State, Kentucky, N.C. State, North Carolina, South Carolina and West Virginia. He took officials to Oregon State, Mississippi State and South Carolina before becoming a National Signing Day commitment on February 1.
Next up: A promising kid from Charlotte, Eric Douglas.
