Abe Markowitz

Position OL Height 6-3 Weight 275 40 speed 5.27 School Punahou School Hometown Honolulu Incoming Year 2008
Offered By Miami, Hawaii, Portland State, St. Francis (PA)

Initially posted by NickSkin on 03/12/08 at 12:37 pm

2008 PROSPECT: Abe plays OL and DT for The Punahou School in Honolulu.  Before his junior season, played strictly on defense. Missed five games as a junior in 2006 due to injury...ILH JV Shot Put and Discus champion, and a Varsity Finalist in the Hawaii State Track & Field Championships. Cousins include SF 49'er Jesse Sapolu and Max Tuioti-Mariner. Abe's father was a UCLA Bruin outside linebacker in the 70's, and his grandfather was a USC running back in the 50's.  Considered $cout.com's #30 player in its final Northwest Hot 100 list for 2008.  Here is one report on Abe:

Markowitz is a guard with adequate size that comes from a pass oriented offense. He is a solid pass blocker that displays the ability to quickly get set. He can maintain a good base and mirror a rusher in the short area. He will use his hands to punch, but will keep them low or exposed at times. He can deliver a good punch and will sit in there and battle. He needs to work on staying square and playing with more knee bend. He exhibits adequate strength, but will get straight-legged and can get knocked back. He displays good awareness and will keep his head on a swivel and help fellow linemen. He can get set quickly, but at times can be slow off the ball. When he does that he will allow the defender to get into him. He can deliver a pop on contact in the run game. He does a solid job of using angles to push a defender out of the hole. He does a good job of working up to the second level and getting a piece of moving targets. Markowitz is a solid guard prospect that needs to get into a college weight program and add some bulk.
