Michalski also earned the 810 Varsity lineman award in 2017, and backed it up with leading the Aquinas monster line, and bulldozing their way to the school's first state title and an undefeated campaign. The 6-foot-4, 270-pounder will play at Oklahoma State.
Turner Corcoran, Free State
Corcoran has been a nationally prized recruit since the get-go, as the 6-foot-6, 270-pound offensive tackle held offers from Auburn, Clemson, Georgia and, well, you name it. After helping Free State to a 12-1 record, Corcoran - ranked No. 7 in the 2020 class at offensive tackle - has his list trimmed to Oklahoma, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Oklahomas State, Nebraska, KU and K-State.
