Alliance (OH) Marlington HS
6-4 / 300 lbs.
Scout.com Ranking: Offensive Guard #50 overall
Allen Trieu on Higgins: He's a mauler, a big, straight ahead road grader in the running game. He has to work on his pass protection, which will certainly be coached into him at MSU, but he has all the pre-requisites: mainly size, strength and some meanness.
DANTONIO ON HIGGINS: "Zach is a tough-minded offensive lineman. He attended our camp and we saw him play in 2011. He's very athletic and physical, showed balance and explosion, and has excellent feet. He's also an outstanding wrestler. We have him projected as a guard."
