There is projection with every recruit, but some a lot more than others. Linebacker Aaron Hansford is a prospect where projection is everything.
I don’t need to see him at a camp to know he is a great athlete and looks like he can be the prototype outside linebacker in a 4-3 defense. With limited film, though, I also can’t see a lot of things he can do well now with the pads on either. Even without the film, he athletically projects in the upper tier at his position for the next level and that’s why schools like Ohio State, Penn State, and Notre Dame have all offered him a scholarship.
