Nicolo DiFronzo of Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian was seen at Cal Lutheran grinding away in front of the Washington coaches at the June 9 Rising Stars camp, with the hope that his next scholarship offer could come from a Power Five school.
The 6-foot-3, 275-pound anchor for the Lions’ offensive line arrived to the Rolland Stadium sprint turf with four offers in tow, including one from Air Force, his lone Mountain West Conference offer.
The 2017 prospect DiFronzo said the camp experience was a different one for him compared to what he’s normally accustomed to, but enjoyed showcasing his skills in front of the Huskies.
“I think I did good. The one-on-ones were different from other camps. I’ve been to camps where it gets physical, but this one was more about technique,” DiFronzo said. “But I think I did good overall. I think my technicality was one of the main things I got a chance to show off to the UW coaches.”
He and highly-coveted Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure offensive tackle Casey Roddick [eight reported offers] helped headline the offensive line group who showed their leverage, lateral feet and run/pass blocking techniques under a 79 degree sky in Simi Valley.
DiFronzo’s other offers are from Army, Columbia and San Diego. The versatile lineman doesn’t have a favorite, but will be taking an unofficial visit to Air Force on July 11.
The main blocker for the Lions’ running attack and key protector for current USC quarterback commit Matt Corral said he’s eagerly waiting to help showcase this year’s veteran talent at Oaks.

“Our offense will be really explosive this year because we’ve got a lot of key guys coming back,” DiFronzo said. “We were young last year with the exception of [Michael] Pittman Jr. and Gil’Scott Jackson, but we’ve got more core players back this year and have a ton of athletes on defense returning too.”
