Alosi Leaning Towards Maryland

2010 prospect can see himself being a Terp, just waiting for an offer.

When 6-foot-5-inch, 255 pound lineman Anthony Alosi walks onto the field, opponents take notice. At the end of an 11-1 regular season for Cherokee High School in Marlton, New Jersey, Alosi was awarded with First Team All-County, First Team All-Group IV, and Second-Team All-South Jersey Honors. However, those honors were not the most impressive feats Alosi achieved this season. Cherokee High School won the New Jersey State Championship, thanks in large part to the trenches work of Alosi.

Alosi, who plays offensive guard and defensive tackle, is becoming noticed by many college scouts for all of the success he has had throughout his high school career.

Alosi is being recruited by Pittsburgh, Maryland, Syracuse, James Madison, Villanova, Maine, and Richmond. He does not have an offer yet, but Alosi is hoping to get one soon.

One of the offers that Alosi hopes to receive would be from the University of Maryland. He has visited the school before for a camp and was very fond of it from his visit.

“I really like the campus, it's beautiful there. I really liked the coaching staff. The players seem really cool. I got a good vibe from Maryland,” Alosi said. “If I had an offer, I would probably go there.”

Should he get an offer from Maryland, or any of the bigger schools on his list for that matter, Alosi would play offensive line exclusively. While he does not seem to mind leaving the defensive side of the field, Alosi is looking for an experienced coach with past success.

“It would be awesome to play for Ralph Friedgen because he knows what he's doing and he's experienced,” Alosi said.

Alosi will continue to wait and hope for an offer. The Class of 2010 recruit has achieved numerous honors throughout his career and would love for those to pay off with a scholarship, especially for the chance to play for Friedgen's Maryland Terrapins.
