Is it possible to read into this at all?

via CFB – USC, UCLA, Oregon, Washington battle for SoCal recruits – ESPN.

Southern California always has been an inviting target for college football recruiters, but it might never have been as tempting as it is right now. The talent base is rich and deeper than it has been in a decade, especially with linemen, according to college coaches.

My first instinct is that with obesity on the rise it kind of makes sense that there is a glut of talented linemen. My second instinct is to slap myself for thinking that can be inferred from such a small bit of anecdotal evidence. But I do wonder if there is any statistically significant correlation between rising obesity and the depth of talent at the high school offensive and defensive line positions (or possible to even measure).
