Player Profile: Alston Orji
(Video will AutoPlay above)
Orji is one of the more intimidating physical specimens that you will find. He is the team leader of the defense type and he is looking at some solid years to round out his high school career. The jury may be a bit out on exactly what linebacker fits him best transitioning to the next level or if he will end up playing inside or outside, right now we look at the potential position flexibility as a strength and that he could fit in multiple defenses depending on how they see his game fitting in with what they run. He is a good tackler on tape and is a tremendous run stopper, but we also like seeing him making plays in space in the passing game. He is set for a breakout nationally.
As a junior, Orji finished with 58 tackles and one fumble recovery.
