Alli Ready to Prove His Worth
An athletic tight end that can stretch the middle of the field is always greatly desired in the game of college football. While Kazeem Alli may not have any offers in hand yet, his potential has many raving about his possibilities. "I believe I'm pretty set with my game at tight end for this coming fall," said Alli. "I'm ready to prove to people that I belong playing college football. I can still always work on my blocking, especially in sustaining my blocks. I know I can catch the ball and that is an ability that often is something that you just possess." Alli will also be giving a new position a try this coming fall. "The coaches have spoken to me about playing some defensive end this fall, and if it will help the team I will certainly do so. Nick (Patterson) informed me that it would probably help my recruitment to go both ways, also. I have only played two years at tight end, and this would be my first at defensive end, but I'm sure it'd give colleges the desire to view me at different positions." With only two years of football under his belt, it is his potential that has kept many colleges still writing. "The Notre Dame coach stopped by the school this winter while they were recruiting Nick, and he told me that he thought I had great potential in playing football. I've also been getting a lot of mail from Missouri, Michigan, Ohio State, Iowa, and Northwestern." Lastly, Alli knows the trend of offers very well could come from impressive camp performances this summer and has already begun making some plans. "I know our team will attend the team camp at Mizzou this summer, and I may attend the Nike Combine in Iowa City in May. I may join my teammate, running back AJ Jimmerson, and attend Michigan's summer camp, but I'm undecided right now." An invitation will be mailed out to Alli this week for TheInsiders.com/MSL Combines.
