OTH First Eleven 2023: No. 4 Brock Schott

Outside the Huddle and Blitz are counting down who they feel are the top 50 individual players in northeast Indiana heading into the 2023 season.

Our highest preseason honor, the 5th annual First Eleven profiles the top players (in the mind of Outside the Huddle) entering this fall.

No. 4: TE/DE Brock Schott, junior, Leo

With big-body, big-skill tight ends having a bigger and bigger impact on the game, identifying the next stars at the position is essential for college coaches.

But being a matchup nightmare at tight end is just half of the story with Schott, who begins his junior campaign with 15 scholarship offers from the likes of Purdue, Indiana, Miami (FL) and Wisconsin and heavy interest from heavy hitters Notre Dame, Georgia and Alabama.

At 6-foot-3 and around 210 pounds, Schott is a specimen, one that is not done growing. Offensively, he hauled in 468 yards of receiving last year while working along the line and thrust to the outside. He is the classic case of too big for defensive backs to contain and too quick for linebackers to keep up with.

But Schott may arguably be a bigger prospect along the edge, where he tallied 12 sacks and 55 tackles last season. He has the long, powerful frame that programs covet on the perimeter of their defensive front, players who can get off blocks but aren’t lumbering to the point that the play is past them by the time they do so.

The scary thing is, Schott still has two years to improve his game and get stronger and faster.

COACH’S QUOTE ON BROCK SCHOTT“Brock is a great all-around football player and one of the hardest working players in our program. He is an impact player on both sides of the football. Defensively, he is a great pass rusher and can also shut down the run game. Offensively, he is a great blocker and can also make big plays as a receiver.”– Leo coach Jason Doerffler
