COMPARISON: Banwart was physically imposing at a lower level in Iowa high school football. Keegan Render played at one level above Banwart, but both stood out on the field as the biggest player on either team most of the time. Banwart will need time to develop into an offensive guard, similar to Render. They are both players we can probably expect one or two seasons from once they are more polished at the college level.
