Prep Career Highlights:

Rallis missed all but three games of his senior season with an injury. Before the injury, he totaled 13 tackles and one pass break-up in three games and also rushed for 122 yards on 22 carries with one touchdown.

As a junior, Rallis earned honorable mention all-state selection by the Associated Press as well as all-Lake Conference honors in 2010. On the season he tallied 72 stops, including 57 solo tackles. He carried the ball 54 times for 251 yards and five touchdowns.

Coach Tracy Claeys' Take:

"Nick's a physical player, a down-hill player. He's had some surgery here in the offseason so his shoulder has got to get healed and get healthy. With Nick, whether it's safety or linebacker, we'll have to see what happens with him as he develops. Definitely a physical player, loves to play the game of football, and will make us better. Our main thing with Nick is for him to get healthy and be ready to go."
