Scouting Report on Matthew Hegarty

by Barry Every - 06/02/2010
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeDivision I Player
  • StrengthDivision I Player
  • AgilityAs Good As It Gets
  • Foot QuicknessBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Does not have the widest shoulders for an offensive lineman, but he does have very long arms. Hegarty’s lower body is very athletic, and he has a good power base. His frame is reminiscent of Colorado offensive lineman Jack Harris.
Needs Improvement: Must add upper body size and strength through his shoulders and chest. He also needs to be more consistent with hand placement during pass protection.
Most Impressive: One of the most natural hip and knee benders in this recruiting class. He has enough athleticism that he could possibly play strong side defensive end at some BCS schools. Hegarty also has very quick feet and understands the importance of winning the leverage battle at the point of attack.
Conclusion: If he can put on an extra 30 pounds of muscle mass over the next couple years he will become an all-conference performer with options of playing football after college. He is a tremendous left offensive tackle prospect because he can move his feet in any direction once engaged.
