EDGY's take on Alex Magee? Alex Magee is listed here as a defensive tackle prospect, and Magee spent the entire 2003 season inside, but Magee has exceptional size and frame, and I wouldn't be surprised to see Magee get recruiting looks and sniffs as an offensive line prospects as well. Physically, Magee has great size and strength, and at 6-foot-5 this kid has very good mobility and flexibility. Magee will no doubt get bigger and stronger, and has a frame that could easily add another 20 plus pounds without much effort. Magee drew several double teams as a junior, and I would expect him to draw more and more attention on and off the field this year. Magee, with a solid off-season and summer could very well wind up as a Top 10-25 prospect in Illinois if not even higher! Great upside and potential here.
