Scouting Report (4/10/2020) David Wohlabaugh possesses good height and bulk at this stage. While he needs to work to pack more good mass on his frame, he looks to have a thick, sturdy build and overall size is not an issue. David is a player that has OL DNA with a father who played nine seasons in the NFL and a brother who starts for Duke on the OL.

In pass protection, David displays a good punch and active hands. He demonstrates good knee bend with the ability to stay in front of rushers when he keeps pads down and gets hands on the rusher. He can get a little top-heavy at times and needs to add more mass and strength to help him anchor against power rushers.

Against the run, he displays the ability to get good hand placement and good leg drive can generate a good push. He is a lighter tackle prospect at this stage that moves well and has good range and flashes the ability to adjust and be able to get a hat on moving targets. It is important that he gains weight at a good pace so that he doesn’t lose his foot speed in the process.

You will find plenty of recruits with more bulk at this stage, but few that like to mix it up like David. He is a very physical player who shows excellent effort, toughness and finishing ability to his play.

In a perfect world, the Wildcats will not need him as an early contributor. If he is able to red-shirt that would be very beneficial. If he can take his time and add size without losing his athletic ability he should develop into a force at Kentucky.

Overall, David is a long-framed lineman who has the speed to get downfield and the ability to stay with quicker edge rushers. He has very strong hand use and leg drive that allows him to push defenders around. He displays tenacious demeanor and is more than willing to finish his blocks. He is a prime candidate to pick up his fourth star during his senior season.
