Dashaun Mallory (DT), Bolingbrook
Bolingbrook junior defensive tackle Dashaun Mallory (6-foot-3, 275 pounds) has seen his recruiting stock rise so far this season.
'I've been hearing from Arkansas, Kansas State, Western Michigan, Florida State and Iowa State," Mallory said. "I was invited to come out to games this season at Central Michigan, Arkansas, Iowa State and Purdue."
Mallory also made a recent visit to Purdue.
"The visit to Purdue was decent," Mallory said. "They lost the game but but the place was nice and I enjoyed myself. The Purdue coaches knew who I was before I introduced myself so that was pretty cool. The Purdue coaches said that they like what they see from me and that they will keep an eye out for me the rest of the season."
