Brandon’s Thoughts: Jean is a nice addition to the offensive line group. He comes from one of the big powerhouses in the nation in Deerfield Beach High. He is very athletic and moves very well for someone his size. He has the frame to add more weight and has big time upside. I like that he is coming to Tucson in January as that will only help him and will accelerate his development.
Gabe’s Thoughts: I’m glad to see that Jean is enrolling early. He’s someone who could definitely use some development and college level coaching. There is potential there with his frame and athleticism but as of now it’s hard to project exactly how he will stack up with some of the existing tackles on the roster. I think he could potentially move over to guard if necessary as well.
