Talented linebacker Isaac Slade-Matautia has been one of our favorite defensive players the past two weekends.
He was one of our top three linebackers at The Nike Opening Regional in L.A two weeks ago and looked very good again this past weekend at the Pylon 7v7 tournament in Las Vegas. He weighed in at 6-foot-1, 205 pounds at the NIKE Camp but looks bigger than that and plays with a lot of energy and aggressiveness.
He's a good all around athlete who moves very well in space, was strong in coverage and is always around the football. He's a high level recruit, shows up even better on film with the pads on and has a very nice upside to him.
On the recruiting front, Slade-Matautia has five early offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Nebraska, Washington and Washington State. For more on his recruitment including who else he's hearing from and where he would like to visit, check out the video above.
