Prospect Profile: Jason Respert
Ht: 6-3 Wt: 310 40: 5.51 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Moved into the starting center position as a senior after spending the previous three seasons backing up on the pivot and at guard.
Positives: Hardworking blocker best in confined quarters. Sets with a wide base, works to play with leverage and immediately gets his hands into opponents. Quick off the snap into blocks, picks up stunts thrown by opponents and works hard throughout the play.
Negatives: Lacks adjustment, not effective in motion or on the second level. Must improve the shotgun snap.
Analysis: A consistent college performer, Respert is a marginal athlete with limited upside for the next level. That being the case, his ability to backup at several positions up front could help him find a home at the next level.
