The 2020 recruiting class features a number of offensive tackles that have bright futures. Two that were discussed most during the rankings meetings were Clemson commit Walker Parks and Boston College commit Kevin Pyne. Which one should be ranked higher? Who has the brighter future? Recruiting analysts Woody Wommack and Adam Friedman lay out the arguments for both.

The case for Walker Parks
“While I was slow to come around on Parks and it took me a while to get him into the Rivals100, I still wonder if he's not high enough compared to guys like Pyne, who started off the cycle highly ranked. Parks has everything that modern offensive line coaches look for, including athleticism and a frame to add weight and the versatility to play multiple positions.
"Parks has helped lead his team to the Kentucky state championship game while playing nearly every snap on both sides of the ball. As his high school career has progressed, Parks continues to show a ton of improvement and he will continue to get better at Clemson. He'll have a chance to settle this debate once and for all at the Under Armour Game, and he might even have a chance to move up higher in the final rankings.” - Woody Wommack, Southeast Recruiting Analyst
