Dimitri Vallis, 6-4, 275, 5.0, OL, Northern Valley Old Tappan High School
No offers as of yet. Being recruited by Rutgers, Temple and Hofstra. All schools have said that they'll offer if they like what they see in his first few games.
Rutgers - "I like the coaching staff. I had a lot of fun at their camp. I learned a lot. The coaches are all really good people."
Days at camp
"I went to the Rutgers camp and the Syracuse camp and the Temple combine. They were all good. I played well at Rutgers. I liked the Syracuse camp as well."
Will he make and early decision or a late one?
"I would like to wait till after my senior year before making a decision. I would like to play my season and then worry about all that afterwards."
"I work out every single day. I do speed drills three times a week and work with weights three times a week. I have gotten stronger and faster and I think I know more about the game. I am going to have a 'hard nosed' season. I am going to lay it all on the line."
With a GPA 3.0 and a PSAT of 1080 Vallis can "bring it' in the classroom. He can also "bring it" on the field. Last year on defense he had 53 Tackles, 12 Tackles for losses, 3 QB Sacks and 2 Fumble Recoveries but it is on the offensive line that college coaches look for him to play next year.
Dimitri is an excellent pulling guard who is noted as being a superb pass protector. Vallis has, as they say, "great feet" and people who know him add that he has a "great work ethic" and "great attitude" on top of it. He is being recruited by Joe Susan and Darren Rizzi.
