Nico Falah, a four-star offensive tackle recruit from Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco School, announced his top five schools last night according to ESPN's Greg Biggins via Twitter:
@GregBiggins Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco OL Nico Falah said he's down to 5- #USC #UCLA #Oregon #Cal and #Oklahoma
Falah also has offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Florida, Nebraska, Notre Dame and others.
He stands 6'5" and checks in at 270 pounds, with plenty of room to add more size while maintaining his athleticism. And while size is important, frame and athleticism are the most important things schools look for in offensive linemen, because they are confident that as long as the player has the frame they'll be able to add the muscle to him with a college strength program. Falah is undoubtedly one of the top-25 offensive tackle recruits I've seen in the 2013 cycle, and while Oregon, Cal and Oklahoma have a shot, most believe this will come down to USC or UCLA.
