Oklahoma Christian’s Jacob Chesley has emerged this season as one of the Oklahoma City area’s premier offensive line prospects in the 2020 class.
Blessed with an athletic frame at 6’4, 260-pounds, Chesley is physical, yet agile for an offensive lineman and has worked hard in the weight room to develop his fame. He gets good leverage on runs and has good technique in his pass sets.
He attended camps this offseason at OSU, Baylor, Tulsa, Memphis, Central Arkansas and Oklahoma Baptist as was recognized as a top OL in almost every camp he attended.
“It was a great experience learning from different college coaches and bringing back some of those techniques to my teammates,” Chesley said.
He recently drew an offer from Oklahoma Baptist and has been in contact with Northwestern (Big 10), Tulsa, OSU, Baylor and Dartmouth.
Six Star Football recently caught up with Chesley and asked him about his junior season.
