Northville High has high hopes for the upcoming season and many of those hopes rest with a big, physical offensive line lead by a couple of college prospects, including 6'5, 308-pound guard Dimitri Angelas, who currently has one FBS offer.
"Old Dominion has offered," he said. "It was really exciting. They offered me pretty quickly, within ten days first contact of coaches talking to me. They said they really liked the film and t happened quickly from there. I haven't visited them yet. I'm scheduled to visit in the near future to see their campus and facilities."
In addition to the Monarchs, Angelas is hearing from several other programs as well, thanks in large part to what he has done in the classroom.
"The biggest interest is coming from the Ivy League: Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Dartmouth, Brown. I'm going out to all of those schools for camps this summer. I'm looking forward to that. The MAC is also showing interest, Central Michigan and Toledo."
On additional camps, Angelas says, "I haven't had any scheduled, but I plan on going to some MAC schools this summer."
It is not just size and brute strength that Angelas possesses. In fact, recruiters have told him it is how he moves that has added into the interest he is receiving.
"Well, coaches always say I get off the ball really well and I do a good job of squaring my hips and exploding off the line."
Recruiting is just one part of his focus, as he looks to improve over the summer and help his team build to a goal that has narrowly escaped them to this point.
"Personally, as a team, I think we all want to win the conference this year, because we've been real close in the past. My sophomore season, we were within four points of beating Plymouth. It was heartbreaking. It would have been the first conference championship Northville won."
Now about to enter his senior season, this is Angelas' chance to make that happen, all while generating more interest as a recruit.
