Jorge Gonzalez
, Offensive Lineman,
6-3, 300, Fr-HS,
Tampa, Fla. (Catholic)

Two-year all-county selection in the talent-rich Tampa, Fla., area … Three-year letterman and three-year starter at Catholic HS in Tampa … Played guard his sophomore and junior seasons, then moved to center his senior year … Played in the Hillsborough County vs. Orange County All-Star Game following his senior season, which was won by Hillsborough County … Has good strength, with top efforts of 570 pounds in the squat lift and 320 in the bench press … A natural left-hander, he snaps right-handed, which enables him to deliver his first blow to the opponent with his dominant hand … Coached by Jim Guderian, a former college coach and long-time high-school coach … Guderian coached former Alabama All-America center Steve Mott and former LSU All-America center Nacho Albergamo when they were in high school; Guderian says that Gonzalez compares very favorably to them … "Jorge has a lot of upside, great feet, and is strong enough to take a guy head-on and move him," Guderian said. "At this stage, he's every bit as good as Albergamo and Mott were in high school." … Will be a two-year letterman on the baseball team as a pitcher and first baseman … First name pronounced the same as "George" … Narrowed his choices to Kentucky, Alabama-Birmingham, Connecticut, and Purdue before going with the Wildcats.
