You canít teach size or intensity. Everything else an offensive guard needs can be learned from good coaching, but size and intensity are born into a player like Maurice Hurt.

Hurt does just that; puts a hurt on defenders rushing at him. At Baldwin High School (Milledgeville, Ga.), Hurt was named team offensive most valuable player in 2004 and team captain in both 2004 and 2005.

The 6-foot-4, 340-pound monster has been mauling defenders into the ground since 2002, when he began his run of all-region and all-Middle Georgia honors. He still has to work on his speed off the snap, technique and form, but will bring an attitude to a team that has needed it up front badly.
