Every program looks to build their team starting with the offensive line. That means big, athletic linemen are always in high demand. Arie Kouandjio is one the better ones in the country and has a long offer list to prove it.
Despite the many suitors, Arie has yet to begin the process of sorting through schools.
"I have strong interest in everyone at this point. I don't plan to do any camps this summer. My teammate is going up to the Boston College camp, but I'm not doing any camps. I wanted to the camp at Raven's Stadium, but I'm going to California. My brother is going to that one."
The trip to California is not just for relaxation. Arie is planning to visit one of the schools that have offered him.
"I'm visiting Cal on the 17th. After that I'm not sure what I plan to do. I've not eliminated anyone at this point. I'm just taking it all in right now."
With every top academic school interested in him, you would assume academics are the top consideration.
"Academics are no that important. I think I can get a good education anywhere. But, I don't know at this point. I'm not looking at any one too hard right now. I'm just taking it in at this point."
Arie Kouandjio is 6'5" and 310 pounds, but is a very agile athlete. For many kids, carrying 300 pounds means carrying a lot of bad weight. Arie is an exception, which is why so many programs are recruiting him.
"I don't know what it is. I guess I have good genes. It really is just genetics. I have always had a big body. I'm planning to play tackle in college, but if the college I go to wants me to play guard then I play guard."
Boston College has offered and has also offered his line-mate Shane Johnson. BC wants Arie as a tackle. Coach Day is handling his recruitment for the Eagles
