Jacob Yordy's blocking entourage could be getting burlier, and Ryan Peerboom's passing pocket could be getting safer.

Impact offensive lineman Treshon Long has moved to Longview and, pending final paperwork, will register at R.A. Long on Thursday, RAL football coach Erik Bertram said.

Long made the Tacoma News Tribune's all-area team and The Olympian's all-area team and was first-team all-3A Narrows League following his junior season at North Thurston High School in Lacey last fall.

A recruiting profile page at espn.com lists Long at 6-foot-2, 327 pounds.

He started at center for the Rams as a sophomore, earning second-team all-league honors in the gritty Evergreen 2A Conference, where North Thurston played before moving up in the most recent classification cycle.

North Thurston went 9-3 and finished second in the Narrows in 2012.

Bertram said that Long has moved in with his grandfather and hopes he'll participate in Lumberjack spring football workouts starting May 28.

If Long stays at RAL, he would join a group of returning linemen that is arguably the strongest unit on the team. It includes three-year two-way starter Skylen O'Brien and returning all-leaguers Morgan Baker, Mitch Moe, Stephen Smith and Matt Fugleberg.

They'll anchor an offense directed by first-team all-league QB Peerboom that features first-team all-league RB Yordy and second-team all-league WRs Brady Hulings and Lamar Swagerty.
