Hybrid D-Lineman Demands Attention

At 6'5" 255lbs, Anthony Alosi is hard to miss being that he is such a tall order. These measurables give him the ability to play both inside and out on the defensive front. True defensive linemen are hard to find straight out of H.S, making the position among the hardest to recruit successfully. Therefore, there are many suitors throughout the country requesting his services.

The junior defensive lineman out of Marlton Cherokee High School (NJ) will likely become one of the most highly regarded prospects in the region for 2010. Although it is still early, the young standout is being recruited by Rutgers, Connecticut, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Duke, North Carolina, Arizona, Syracuse, Temple, Pitt, Northwestern and Cincinnati. No one has actually offered as of yet but they are sure to come in the near future.

His recruiting success is attributed to his work ethic on the field. "I work hard, give all I got and don't stop until after the whistle blows" said Alosi. His motor and dedication has lead to over 80 tackles and 14 sacks worth of production over the past 2 seasons. He plans to be even better next year. "I plan on working on my speed and agility in the off season instead of concentrating too much on strength. I will work on my change of direction and try to get better to bring us a championship" Alosi said.

The 2nd Team All- Group 4 and Burlington County selection has a top 4 which consists of Rutgers, Virginia, Maryland, and Connecticut. Style of play, academics and team culture are his most important factors in selecting a school. In regards to Rutgers, he sated "Rutgers in a really nice school. I went there for Jr. Day. They seem to have gone through a rebuilding season last year. My parents like it a lot".

Anthony will spend his off-season attending the combine circuit in order to better his skills and increase the possibility of becoming a national recruit.
