Four-star lineman Anthony LaLota grabbed two more offers from Pittsburgh and Arkansas on Thursday and is expecting another SEC offer very soon. The 6-foot-6, 260-pound athlete from The Hun School is being recruited mostly at defensive end, however Scout.com has him ranked as the No. 6 offensive tackle in the entire country after reviewing his film.
"I saw Pittsburgh play here in New Jersey against Rutgers and really like the aggressive style of defense they play," LaLota said. "I have been to their campus for a basketball tournament and thought it was pretty nice. The facilities that I played in were great and the area surrounding Pitt is cool. I haven't talked to the coaching staff yet, so I'm going to have to learn more about them."
"Arkansas offered me as well, but I don't know much about them either," LaLota explained. "They play in the SEC which is a great conference and are putting two running backs into the 1st round of the draft this year in Darren McFadden and Felix Jones, so you know they pump out talent down there. Coach Bobby Petrino has also been pretty successful at his other jobs."
Another SEC offer could be coming soon for LaLota.
"Florida is close to offering. I talked to Coach Steve Addazio and I am planning on visiting them this month to check things out."
As a junior, LaLota made 40 tackles, 10 sacks, forced two fumbles and deflected a pass. It was his first year playing football.
