Slaight is a good looking JUCO OL

College of the Siskiyous OT Brendan Slaight (6-7, 330) is, quite literally, a mountain of a man and his outstanding size and quick feet have brought him some early attention from four-year schools. caught up with the gifted big-man and he updated us on where things stand...

Slaight hails from Colton, Oregon where he was a standout prep. He wasn't heavily recruited out of high school and didn't go through the Clearinghouse process, deciding instead to head to College of the Siskiyous to further his football career.

"I wasn't really recruited, so I just thought coming here was the right thing since it was closer to home and I liked the staff here," Slaight told recently.

As a freshman last season, Slaight started the final nine games of the regular season and earned First Team All-Conference and All-State honors for his work.

"I think I'm probably better at run-blocking just because of my size and when you block for the run, you can fire off and be physical and get after guys," Slaight said. "I mean, I like pass-blocking and I feel I am pretty good at that too, but if I had to say I was better at one or the other, it would be run-blocking."

Slaight has been hard at work in the weight room this offseason, hoping to add strength and size to his already impressive frame.

"I'm working out five or six days a week because I want to get stronger," Slaight said. "You have to put in the work in the offseason to be better during the season."

On the recruiting front, no schools have offer as of yet, but two schools are already showing him quite a bit of interest and more have spoken to his coaches.

"The two schools I've talked to right now are Arizona and Kansas," Slaight said. "They both like me as a tackle and said they liked my film a lot and that they were really interested yet, but they haven't offered or anything yet.

"My coaches told me a lot of the Pac 12 schools have called them about me and like what I can do, but I haven't really spoken to them, so I'm not sure which ones are calling."

Slaight is on pace to graduate in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2013 football season.
