At 6'5, 270-lbs, LaLota could project to either offensive tackle or defensive end. While he is being recruited by offensive line coach Greg Frey, he said the Wolverines are recruiting him on defense where he tallied 10 sacks a year ago.
With the camp season coming up, LaLota will be busy like many of the country's other top recruits.
"I'll be at Notre Dame's one day camp, then I'll probably go to Michigan but I'm not sure when. I will probably go out there this summer, but I don't know if it will be for camp."
While he has not yet been to Ann Arbor, LaLota has familiarized himself with what Michigan has to offer both on and off the field.
"I know they have a great school and a great business program and that's what I want to study. They also have a lot of tradition there and they're always a winning team."
With schools like Boston College, Notre Dame, Florida, Florida State and others on his offers list, LaLota will have his pick of the litter when it comes to his college destination. He says he plans to make some cuts soon, but at this point, he does not have any leaders.
"I'm still trying to evaluate things right now," he explained, "I'm taking my time."
