When Kentucky Sports Report's Chris Layton asked Jerrell Greene what he liked about Kentucky he said…
Provancha looking hard at Marshall
"They are a good program, but I want to check them out and make sure I fit in there and feel like I will be comfortable there and if that happens then I will sign with them."
Landis prepped at Sprague High School in Salem, Oregon and expected to play for Oregon, but some coaching changes altered his plans a bit.
"I was being recruited by coach (Neal) Zoumboukos and he told me he wanted to offer me a scholarship," Provancha said. "But then he got moved to a different position and they said they didn't have a scholarship for me so I had to walk on.
"When I decided to walk on, the coaches told me I could earn a scholarship the next spring after one opened up, but they ended up not having one and since I was recruited by coach Z and he was no longer coaching and I didn't feel like I had a relationship with coach (Steve) Greatwood, I just decided to leave."
While at Oregon and Grossmont, Provancha practiced at both guard and tackle and while in high school he played center at tackle.
"I can play anywhere on the line so I think my versatility is a real bonus," Provancha said. "I feel real comfortable at tackle, but wherever a team needs me to play, that's where I'll go and help them out."
Provancha sports a 355 max on the bench press and runs a 5.0 in the forty so he feels he's capable of pulling or mauling players on running plays, but it's his pass-protection he's worked the hardest on.
"My footwork is what everyone tells me is my best feature," Provancha said. "I've worked really, really hard on getting better with my feet and it's helped me improve as a pass-blocker."
Besides his versatility and athleticism, another aspect that makes him such an appealing prospect is the fact that he will have three years to play three when he steps on campus this summer.
We'll continue to track Provancha's progress and update things after he returns from his visit to Marshall.
