Bolingbrook junior defensive tackle recruit Dashaun Mallory (6-foot-3, 270 pounds) could very well be on the verge of a big spring evaluation period recruiting breakout.
It's not like Mallory has been ignored by colleges so far. Mallory has added a half dozen scholarship offers from the likes of Iowa State, Wyoming, NIU and a handful of other Mid American Conference schools.
Yet when you are a quick, strong and highly athletic 6-foot-3 and 270 pounds plus defensive tackle with huge upside and potential, it's only a matter of time before the bigger boys come calling. Mallory made a recent visit to Michigan State and several other Power 5 schools are beginning to close in on Dashaun Mallory quickly.
I caught up with Dashaun Mallory at the 5th Annual Franklin Dodgeball Madness Tournament at Franklin Middle School in Wheaton. Proceeds from the tournament benefited the school, the DuPage Hundred Club, Team Red, White and Blue and The Pat Tillman Foundation. Watch the video above.
