Strachan Preparing For Breakout 2017 Season

2017 New Mexico Military OL Christian Strachan (6-5, 310) has two offers and a couple of other schools are evaluating him...

"I currently have offers from North Carolina Central and South Alabama," Strachan told recently. "Iowa State's offensive line coach wants me to come up on a visit and the UCF coaches have asked me to come up on a visit too, so those are schools I'm looking at as well."

Strachan redshirted last season after tearing the ACL in his right knee, so this fall will be his first taste of college football.

"I tore it early, so I rehabbed it and redshirted last season, but I am 100% ready to go now," Strachan noted. "They have me at left guardn right now, but I can swing between guard and tackle and that's probably what I will do this fall.

"I can run block and pass block pretty well, so I really don't think I do one better than the other. I just like to work. I have a good motor and I'm aggressive."

As a prep at Chaminade Madonna Prep in Hollywood, Florida, Strachan had several schools after him, but he didn't qualify until very late in the process, so he decided to sign with the Broncos to figure things out and get ready for the next step.

"I didn't take the ACT until really late, so by the time I qualified, there wasn't anyone else interested in me," Strachan said. "I talked to some people and they told me to look at the program here and I liked the staff and the atmosphere here. It instills discipline and I felt like it was the best thing I could do."

Because he redshirted last season, Strachan will finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play three following the 2016 football season.
