Fox Sports' college football analysts named 5-star defensive lineman prospect and No. 1-rated recruit Bryan Bresee the top "impact freshman" in college football.
"I think he checks off a lot of those boxes," Joel Klatt said. "He's certainly physically-ready. He's 6-5 290 pounds. He's quick enough to maybe trim down and stay where he's at and play on the edge and he could even bulk up and be a 315-pound interior defensive lineman. And he's got the quickness and hand-quickness and toughness and strength to rush the quarterback from the interior. I think it's that versatility that helps him. All of us are gonna love those -- he was a great basketball player and he's got that athleticism to go with the big frame."
Bresee tallied 35 sacks and 80.5 tackles for loss over his Damascus career.
