Big Tackle Can Only Go Up
Iowa Western Head Coach Scott Strohmeier said that Ebert is a player that is coming into his own while at the junior college. Strohmeier describes Ebert as a player using great leverage and has something every program desires.
"The No. 1 thing he has is a great motor," Strohmeier said of Ebert.
When looking at video Ebert it is easy to see a player, who is in great physical condition and able to move around on the field.
"He can hold 300," Strohmeier said of Ebert's weight. "He might be down (in weight) a little now in the winter."
In the classroom, Ebert has also matured. Out of high school he was a non-qualifier but through his hard work now is a 3.0 student and would normally be scheduled to graduate in May. However, he is taking additional classes and is looking to be finished in March so that he can be able to enroll in schools on a quarterly system. That way he would be able to workout with a team in spring football.
How did Oregon come across this kid from the Midwest? Storhmeier indicated that a coach with ties to Northern Iowa, Scott Frost heard about Ebert. Now Defensive Line Coach Jerry Azzinaro is Ebert's point of contact with the Ducks.
The JC coach said his player is also considering Oklahoma State and Penn State with several programs including Missouri making a bid for Ebert's services. For now though, Ebert's first official visit is to Oregon.
