Size and strength are a must when building a top-tier offensive line. That's why the Bulls extended an early offer to Nick Alajajian from Naples High School. The 6-foot-4, 280 pound right tackle has been a starter since his sophomore year. As a junior Alajajian started all but two games (injury) and helped lead his team to an undefeated season and a state championship on the 3A level.
"I love to run block" said Alajajian.
"My favorite play is either the 46-option or the reverse. I like the reverse because I can get out and light people up."
On the next level, Nick is projecting as a right tackle and he's already racked up quite the offer list.
"I've got offers from UF, FSU, Clemson, USF, Miami and Tennessee." Adding, "My coach has received phone calls from Texas, Ohio State, Notre Dame and Georgia, but they haven't offered me."
This offeseason Alajajian is working on getting stronger and faster. By the start of next season Nick hopes to weigh about 290 and get his forty-time down to 5.0, he's currently around a 5.1-5.2 forty-time.
Does the Big Man have a favorite?
"Right now I'd have to say its UF and FSU. Nobody's out yet, those are just the two schools I've been to. I have an open mind right now and I'm going to learn about every school that offers me. Right now I'm seeing what offers come in, I won't narrow it down for a couple months."
This summer Nick plans to attend a couple college camps, which will not only help him improve his blocking skills, but also learn more about the programs that have offered him.
Nick says he hopes to make a final decision after his senior season, in the meantime he's going to do everything he can to help his team defend their state title.
