As we head towards a new football season in the fall of 2022, IdahoSports.com is getting fans ready by unveiling the Top 10 players at each position.  These lists feature players from all corners of the state, and from all six classification levels.  Each week, we'll publish a new list of Top 10 players.  Here's the schedule:


July 7 (Offensive Linemen)

July 13 (Defensive Linemen)

July 20 (Running Backs)

July 27 (Linebackers)

August 3 (Wide Receivers/Tight Ends)

August 10 (Defensive Backs)

August 17 (Quarterbacks)


Without further ado, here are the Top 10 Offensive Linemen to watch out for in 2022.  These selections have been made by the editorial staff at IdahoSports.com, and are listed in alphabetical order by school.  We made these selections based on a number of factors, including: returning All-State or All-Conference pedigree, college recruiting hype, and the good old-fashioned eye test.


Aiden Dorantes, Declo (Sr.)

Although Dorantes is on the smaller side compared to others on this list (5-foot-10, 210 pounds), he is a master technician, especially when run blocking.  As a team last year, the Hornets rushed for nearly 200 yards per game, and his ability to set the edge on the perimeter was a big reason why.


Cody Dickard, Melba (Sr.)

There is no better center in the state than the 6-foot, 275 pound Dickard, who will be entering his third season as a starter at Melba.  Dickard just picked up his first college offer from NAIA powerhouse Grand View University in Des Moines, Iowa.  More offers will follow.


Jacob Belles, North Fremont (Sr.)

Belles checks in at 6-foot-3 and 250 pounds, and is just the latest in a long line of North Fremont standout offensive linemen.  He was a 1st Team All-Nuclear Conference selection, and helped the Huskies rush for more than 330 yards per game as a team.


Carson Rasmussen, Owyhee (Sr.)

Rasmussen had college coaches from all over competing for his services, and for good reason.  The 6-foot-5, 295 pound senior is a top ten recruit in the state of Idaho this year, and just last week, announced his commitment to Boise State.  Anytime the Broncos offer a scholarship to a local player, you know he must be legit.


Logan Amos, Potlatch (Sr.)

Way up north, tucked away on the Palouse, is one of Idaho's best-kept secrets: the 6-foot-1, 225 pound Amos and the rest of his Potlatch Logger teammates.  Despite finishing 6-4 a year ago and qualifying for the Class 1A Division I playoffs, many are still sleeping on Potlatch's potential this year.  Amos goes both ways, and could easily have qualified for our Top 10 Defensive Linemen list as well.


Jackson Fullmer, Rocky Mountain (Sr.)

Not every high school coach keeps track of offensive linemen statistics, which makes it hard to gauge what's impressive and what isn't.  When it comes to the 6-foot-4, 280 pound Fullmer, here's all you need to know: he dished out 74 pancake blocks last year, which is astronomical.  How good is Fullmer?  Arizona State, Boise State, Colorado, Idaho State, Kansas State, Oregon State, San Jose State, UNLV, Utah State, and Washington State have all shown interest in the Rocky Mountain senior.


Zach Penner, Rocky Mountain (Sr.)

If you thought going up against Fullmer was bad enough, meet Rocky Mountain's other standout offensive lineman: the 6-foot-4, 275 pound Penner.  Penner is Idaho's top-ranked interior offensive lineman on the recruiting circuit, and was named the Offensive Line MVP at the University of Idaho camp earlier this summer.  Speaking of the Vandals, they are joined by Big Sky foes Idaho State, Montana State and Portland State as schools that have extended an offer to Penner.


Wylan Dorrel, Sandpoint (Sr.)

The 6-foot-5, 288 pound Dorrel picked up a scholarship offer from Idaho earlier this spring, but an impressive string of performances on the summer circuit could lead to increased competition for his services.  Sandpoint rushed for over 200 yards per game as a team a year ago, and Dorrel (and the next guy on our list) were a big reason why.


Carson Laybourne, Sandpoint (Sr.)

Laybourne brings an impressive resume to the table: 6-foot-4, 305 pounds, 1st Team All-Inland Empire League, 1st Team All-State, 3.75 GPA, wrestling and track standout, etc.  Like his Bulldog teammate Wylan Dorrel, Laybourne has been busy on the summer camp scene, and a future in the Big Sky Conference is a definite possibility.


Tui Edwin, Skyline (Sr.)

The 6-foot-3, 280 pound Edwin has been a starter at Skyline since his sophomore year, and his play on the interior of the offensive line has helped the Grizzlies claim back-to-back 4A championships.  The 1st Team All-State selection also had the second best shot put throw in the state this past spring (57 feet, 3 inches).
