    That was the case for Lehigh OG Will Rackley. He was 6-2 and 260 pounds coming out of high school in Georgia, lightly recruited by Georgia Tech and not at all by the other ACC and SEC schools, landing in the Patriot League because of academics. But the growth spurt happened and Rackley — who is now a 6-3, 309-pounder — started to dominate.
    "I definitely went out there to try and embarrass guys," Rackley said.

    Slippery Rock C Brandon Fusco, the 2010 Gene Upshaw Division II Lineman of the Year, also was a late-bloomer. The 240-pound high school senior wasn't touched by Pittsburgh or Penn State, the biggest schools near where he grew up, only getting a walk-on invitation from Youngstown State.
    Now Rackley and Fusco rate as mid-round picks.
