Saguaro HS OL Cyrus Hobbi (Scottsdale, AZ) is regarded as one of the top O-line prospects in the West for the 2011 recruiting class. The standout O-lineman has reeled in offers from coast to coast and more could be on the way soon. "I have offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Nebraska, Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, Alabama, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Michigan, Notre Dame, and LSU," he said.

Some reports indicated that Cyrus (6'3, 285) has been offered by Boise State. Currently, that is not the case but he'd like to hear from the Broncos. "Boise State said a while back they were going to offer," he said. "I haven't heard much from them since. Boise State is a real good ball club and I'd like to see them play some of those bigger name teams," he added.

Hobbi plans on narrowing his list down in the next few months. "I'd like to have a top five before summer or at least before the season," he stated. "I'll probably take my five official visits and then commit."

Cyrus is looking for a school that offers a solid college experience. "The environment and campus will be big. That's why I want to checkout a bunch of schools," he said. "I want a good academic school as well since I want to have something to do if I don't make it to the league."

Last season, the unbelievable run of consecutive state championships ended at three for Saguaro. Hobbi hopes to lead them back to that level of success in 2010. "We lost in the semis last year," he said. "We only had three returning starters and two seniors. Losing last year was bad enough. I want to go out with an undefeated season my senior year."

Saguaro HS is no stranger to Boise State. The Broncos currently have two former Sabercats on the roster in Joe Kellogg and Justin Jungblut. "Justin always worked his tail off in HS," Hobbi said. "I saw him somewhat recently and he was looking good. I think he's around 260 or so now and really athletic."

Hobbi plans on being a leader this upcoming season. "I'm going to try to be the best leader I can," he said. "I'm going to be nasty. Guys respect me, but don't like lining up against me. That's one of my better qualities. I can play every position on the O-line except center."
