Fairburn (Ga.) Langston Hughes four-star offensive tackle Bo Hughley has been committed to Georgia for more than a year, but that hasn’t stopped other teams from pursuing him.
Auburn made a run at the 6-foot-6, 295-pounder earlier this fall, and LSU is the latest SEC rival to working to flip Hughley from the Bulldogs. On Saturday, he tripped to Baton Rouge to watch the Tigers take on Alabama — on the same day Georgia hosted No. 1 Tennessee in Athens.
Hughley is the No. 99 overall prospect in the 2023 class, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He ranks as the nation’s No. 9 offensive tackle and the No. 5 senior recruit in the state of Georgia.
He originally planned to be at Georgia this weekend, he told On3’s Jeremy Johnson earlier this week, but ultimately made the call to cross state lines and head to see the Tigers. LSU currently has one of the country’s top offensive line classes, a group led by five-star offensive tackle Zalance Heard and recent commit DJ Chester.
Bo Hughley Scouting Summary
“Specimen who encapsulates the meaning of the word “prototype” for what an offensive lineman is supposed to look like. Stands over 6-foot-7, 290-plus pounds with nearly a 7-foot wingspan. Has over a 10-inch hand and 36-inch arm and jumped a 20-inch vertical during the spring before his senior season. Primarily lines up at right tackle. Lacks ideal balance and body control. Can play over his toes and tends to lunge and bend at the waist. Good footwork and foot speed for his size. Threw over 43-feet in the shot put as a sophomore at nearly 300 pounds. Plays with a mean streak and looks to finish his opponents consistently. A high upside prospect due to his unique frame and length but will need to clean up his balance and leverage issues.” — Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings
