Rich Rodriguez on Schofield: “Very aggressive, physical player. … He’ll grow into the type of player that we want. … The foundation that we’re building up front is key to our offense.”

Scouts, Inc.: “Schofield is a powerful run blocker on the offensive line. He is a tall and impressive athlete that is light on his feet for a big guy. Especially impressive when double team blocking or down blocking on the of tackle  play. Could come out of his stance lower with more knee bend but does a great job of hand control. Really works Scouthis hands into the frame of the defender and doesn’t allow defensive man to spin out of the block. Moves feet well and gets great knock back off the line of scrimmage. Runs well for a large lineman; gives effort downfield to get the extra block. Has even showed the ability to cover punts. Pass protection is sound; sets back and, as in the run game, has active hands in stopping and controlling the pass rusher. Has a tendency to over extend at times allowing defender the opportunity to go underneath. Schofield is a very good offensive lineman that is an exceptional base and down blocker at the point of attack. He could work on some foot agility and change of direction drills to solidify his pass protection skills.”

Scout: “Athletic tackle prospect with good feet, flexibility and athleticism. Is able to get into the second level and maintains his balance and keeps his feet while blocking in space. Shows some aggressiveness and gets into his man, but could finish off blocks with more authority. Has the frame to add weight and strength and that will be a big key for him at the next level. Once power matches athleticism, he’ll have a chance to be a good one.”

ErocWolverine, Go Blue Michigan Wolverine: “Good combination of size and athletic ability. Skill set fits well with what new Michigan Offensive line need to be able to do.”
