Keeping up with Conyers
Miami (Fla.) product Robert Conyers's senior season is underway. The 6-foot-5 and 277-pound lineman is starting both ways for Braddock High School (0-1), playing offensive tackle, defensive end and defensive tackle.
Conyers (No. 50 offensive tackle nationally and No. 77 prospect in Florida by Rivals.com) will likely play offensive tackle at the college level. The three-star recruit said he brings good athleticism and footwork to the position.
"It helps me a lot, because the teams we play there's a lot of athletic ends," Conyers said. "There's a lot of division one prospects on defense that we face every week. I think it just helps me, because I can get to the second level easier. It's easier to pass protect against those guys."
These qualities have made Conyers a hot commodity for many schools. His leaders are Vanderbilt, Duke, Wake Forest, Michigan State, Florida International, and South Florida.
He is scheduled to visit Vanderbilt Sept. 17 when it hosts Ole Miss, and Florida International Oct. 1 when Duke comes to town. Conyers has yet to schedule any other trips.
He has already been to the Wake Forest campus once before.
"It was nice," Conyers said. "It was a nice small campus."
Lonnie Galloway is recruiting Conyers for Wake Forest. Conyers said his relationship with Galloway is good, but that it has been a long time since they last talked.
