At 6-foot-4 1/2 and 275 pounds, Mission Viejo, Calif. standout Drew Radovich is widely considered one of the top offensive line prospects on the West Coast.
A large part of that is due to his size, something Radovich didn't have much of when he started high school.
"I was about 6-1 and 170," Radovich said laughing. "That was the first time I started playing football. I was playing left tackle and defensive end. Then my sophomore year I was about 6-2 and 220. Then my junior year I played at 6-4 and 260."
Radovich, who doesn't play any other sports, is a full academic qualifier (2.9/960).
"I think I have 14 or 15 offers now," he said. "I've pretty much narrowed things down to four. They are Colorado, Washington, USC, and UCLA. I also like Nebraska and Miami, but Nebraska is a little too far from home while I haven't heard from Miami over the last couple months. I liked them and they were recruiting me in the spring but I haven't heard anything from them over the last two or three months so I guess they stopped recruiting me."
Radovich, whose father played college ball at Arizona State, said he's gearing up for a big senior year.
"I gave up one sack late in the year as a junior," he said. "I'm trying to go the entire season without giving one up this year. And of course not to get injured will also be important."
