Wilkin Formby Player Evaluation
“Tackle prospect who can bend, move and strike at a high level with an elite frame. Prototype build for an offensive tackle. Verified 6-foot-7.5, 302 pounds with close to a 7-foot wing-span at Under Armour’s Atlanta camp prior to his senior season. Plays with strong balance and body control for his size. Shows excellent spatial awareness in pass pro and initiates contact consistently with his length. Has surprisingly good bend and hips for his size, allowing him to gain leverage with ease and bolstering his ability to anchor once engaged. Will only continue to improve once he is in a collegiate strength and conditioning program that will help him develop more explosiveness and functional power.”– On3 Sports Scouting and Rankings Director Charles Power
