Cyrus Kouandjio, #1 Offensive Lineman In Country to Visit Bama!


Cyrus Kouandjio

Top offensive line prospect, Cyrus Kouandjio will be visiting Alabama this upcoming weekend at the final Alabama football camp. He will be spending time with his big brother, Alabama player Arie Kouandjio, and participating in the high school football camp put on by the Alabama coaching staff.

Cyrus Kouandjio is most likely the #1 football recruiting target for Alabama right now. At 6 foot 7 inches tall and a chiseled 295 pounds, Cyrus Kouandjio, from Dematha Catholic School of Hyattsville, Maryland, is no doubt a force to be reckoned with. Very strong, he benches 310 & squats 510 lbs, and he still has a year of high school to go.

Considered this year's #1 offensive lineman prospect in the country and a 5 star recruit, Kouandjio is wanted by every school in the country. Schools like Penn State, USC, West Virginia, Iowa, Clemson are on his list, but Alabama is definitely on his shortlist.

Not only does the facilities & atmosphere in Tuscaloosa impress this young man, but the coaching staff has really left a great impression with him. He said he "loves Alabama a lot" and it is definitely a plus that his brother is playing at Alabama as well.

Recruiting expert, Tom Lemming, has went on record as saying that Kouandjio has all the tools you want in a left tackle, especially after he reaches 320 lbs at the college level. He went on to say that "He has all the tools to be a No. 1 draft choice."

Cyrus Kouandjio - Pushing pile of defendersAlabama in the last three years has brought in top 3 recruiting classes in each of those three years, and it is easy to see the fruits of Nick Saban's labor paying off with a national championship last year. If Alabama can pick up 2-3 more 5 star players, it would most lock up another top 3 class, if not #1 recruiting class.

For 2011, Cyrus Kouandjio is a player that is a "can't miss" prospect. He reminds me of Michael Oher who played for Ole Miss and was also recruited by Nick Saban, which was famously portrayed in the movie, "The Blind Side". Hopefully, we will have better luck this year recruiting Cyrus!

Could you imagine him and DJ Fluker on the same side of the line?

Anyway, I will leave you with some video footage of this big guy and let you pine for his services. As you can see, he has awesome quickness and flexibility for a big man of his size and he can flat out lay the wood on anyone in his way.

Roll Tide!
