Estes is a strong run blocker, getting his hands in the proper position on most blocks. He understands the need to keep his hands inside the defender’s shoulder pads to help control his opponent. He drives with his legs and doesn’t rely only on his upper body strength. With an offer, FSU would ascend to his top group (if not the favorite).
The Georgia offensive lineman was offered by FSU on May 7th.
Today, Estes released his top 5, with the Florida State Seminoles making the cut:
The class of 2021 offensive linemen plays his football at Eagles Landing in McDonough, Georgia. Estes measures in at 6’3 and 291 pounds and has been putting in serious work in the weight room:
Currently Estes ranks as a 3* on the composite and the 8th best center nationally. In Georgia he is ranked as the 41st player overall. The belief is Estes can play center, either guard position, and right tackle at the collegiate level.
Position versatility is a must for an offensive line group that is in desperate need of talent. When we spoke with the center in March, he said he saw himself competing for early playing time in Tallahassee.
What’d you tell Coach Norvell when he asked that? What are your goals and what are you looking for in a school?
“Coach Norvell talked about his coaching style and what he thinks is a successful career. I said ‘I’m looking for a school that feels like home where I have the opportunity to compete for playing time early.’”
Do you feel you have that opportunity for early playing time at FSU?
“I think if given the opportunity and putting the work in I would have an opportunity for PT.”
Estes has offers from Arizona State, Boston College, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Missouri, NC State, Nebraska, Penn State, Syracuse, UCF, and West Virginia, among others. Look for Estes to continue developing relationships and narrow his list more in the coming months.
