USC lands a massive offensive tackle in Zach Banner.

Zach Banner, a massive offensive tackle recruit out of Lakewood (Wa.) Lakes High School, has committed to USC. Banner stands 6'9" and weighs 310 pounds. He holds more than 20 scholarship offers, including Oklahoma, Washington, Arizona, Arizona State, Arkansas, Auburn, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Notre Dame and Oregon. Most sites rank Banner as a four-star prospect.

Banner is the son of Oakland Raider great Lincoln Kennedy. He made waves in recruiting circles as the film from his sophomore year debuted on Youtube. And while Banner perhaps has not developed quite like some have hoped, he is still a very good prospect.

Banner's size and strength are obvious from his film. And his length will give pass-rushers fits. He does need to work on his flexibility and his aggressiveness, as Banner can, at times, allow his intensity to drop against suspect competition. That won't be a problem at USC, however, as Banner will face quality competition in practice and in games.
