#HoosOnBoard17: Tyler Fannin, OL

Name: Tyler Fannin
Position: OC, OG
Hometown: Hoschton, GA (Mill Creek)
247 Composite: 3*, 84.28

Fannin enjoyed an accolade-filled offseason, being named Gwinnett County’s offensive lineman of the year and tabbed as first-team All-State. He had offers from across the Sun Belt and C-USA, plus Power Five offers from Kansas State and Illinois.

He has the most FBS-ready size of any of UVA’s 2017 line commits, standing 6’3 and coming in at 290 pounds. Fannin shows lots of skill to get to the second level, whether that’s coming off a double team or pulling/trapping through a gap. A year of tempo runs and conditioning under Coach Wintrich should help reconstitute some of his current weight as muscular, violent bulk.

Welcome to UVA, Tyler!
