Opening Chicago: DT Dashaun Mallory has big day

There was a good group of defensive linemen at Sunday's Chicago Opening Regional, but Bolingbrook's Dashaun Mallory was one of the guys who may have helped himself the most as he made the final five and had a strong performance all throughout the day.


Dashaun Mallory was the quickest interior defensive lineman we saw on Sunday. That was already evident in drills, but his first step was also there in one on ones and allowed him to make the final five and rarely lose a rep on the day. He has a good handful of offers, several from the MAC and also Iowa State and Wyoming. He has quite a few other programs still evaluating him. It would not be a surprise to see him gain more interest this summer if he keeps performing the way he did Sunday.
