Evan Mallory Taking his Time

Evan Mallory is a 6-foot-4, 310-pound offensive guard from Bradenton (Fla) IMG Academy. The three-star standout linemen has numerous offers, but three could be separating from the rest of the pack.

"The process is going great," Mallory said. "I'm getting around to see schools and have lots of great schools that have already offered. Right now the schools that are "showing the most love" are Cincinnati, Louisville, and Purdue."

In addition to those three, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan State, South Florida, Wisconsin and Toledo are also in the mix for the talented big man.

"It means a lot to me," Mallory said. "It's amazing to know how my hard work has paid off and to have a chance to go and play D1 is huge, and I am extremely blessed! My family is very excited for me as well. I feel my biggest strength is my run blocking. There are always things I'm working on no matter what I do. I will never be perfect so I'm always working to be as close as I can to get to perfection."

Mallory has been working hard over the summer but has found time for himself.

"Nothing more planned right now," Mallory said. "I'm on a mission trip in Alaska right now so I will be making plans when I get home!"
