On3 NIL Valuation: High school offensive tackle averages

Nakos updated headshotby:Pete Nakos06/28/24


Offensive tackle rivals the quarterback position when it comes to landing the top NIL packages in the high school recruiting ranks.

On3 is tracking the top 15 offensive tackles according to the On3 Industry Ranking, breaking down the average tackle On3 NIL Valuation.

The On3 NIL Valuation is calculated by combining Roster Value and NIL. Roster value is the value an athlete has by being a member of his or her team at his or her school, which factors into the role of NIL collectives.

Here is the full breakdown:

OTs 1-5: Average $331K

The 2025 cycle is deep at the offensive tackle position, headlined by David Sanders, Ty Haywood, Michael Fasusi, Andrew Babalola and Carter Lowe (Ohio State commit). All ranked in the top 50 in the nation, the group has an average On3 NIL Valuation of $331,000.

The On3 Industry’s No. 2 ranked prospect regardless of position, Sanders took his final official visit of the process to Ohio State last weekend. Outside of the Buckeyes, Tennessee, Clemson, Georgia, Nebraska and South Carolina are all in the mix. Alabama was on the list but Sanders did not visit in June as originally planned.

According to On3’s Steve Wiltfong, Fasusi is in decision mode and the most confidence is with Texas and Oklahoma.

“With NIL, it’s for sure a factor in it [his decision],” the 6-foot-5, 299-pound offensive tackle said at the On3 Elite Series. “But at the end of the day, I’m putting development and education at the top because I do think that’s what’s going to – that’s the long-term goal. You feel me? NIL it is going to mean a little bit, but I’m all for the long-term money and that’s my goal.”

Wiltfong and Chad Simmons have logged predictions for Haywood to land at Alabama.

OTs 6-10: Average $146K

Will Black (Notre Dame commit), Lamont Rogers, Ryan Fodje (Oklahoma), Jackson Lloyd (Alabama) and Dramodd Odoms make up the second half of the top 10 offensive tackles in the 2025 cycle. The group has an average On3 NIL Valuation of $146,000.

Committed to Notre Dame since this past fall, Black has earned comparisons to former Fighting Irish tackle Joe Alt. At 6-foot-7.5 and 283 pounds, On3 ranks the lineman as the nation’s No. 1 offensive tackle and fifth-overall recruit.

“The people there. I think the culture is amazing,” Black said at the On3 Elite Series. “Everyone’s very like-minded. Everyone goes there, not just for football, but to get a good degree. That’s what the coaches always talk about – the four-for-40. So, the degree from Notre Dame is super valuable and will carry you on past football. …

“They also produce offensive linemen like no other school.”

OTs 11-15: Average $119K

Malachi Goodman is the only offensive tackle in this group yet to announce a commitment and is coming off a visit to USC. Penn State and Georgia are also in the mix for the top 150 prospect. Alex Payne (North Carolina), Broderick Shull (Auburn), Jack Lange (Missouri) and Ziyare Addison (Oregon) are all off the board.

The offensive tackle prospects ranked No. 11 to No. 15 in the On3 Industry Ranking holds a $119,000 On3 NIL Valuation.
