Cyrus Hobbi (OL/2011, Saguaro High School)

Cyrus Hobbi (OL/2011) bench presses 405 pounds and is considered a man amongst boys in the Arizona prep football ranks. "They love how physical and nasty I am, which I take a lot of pride in," says the Saguaro High School senior-to-be offensive lineman. Hobbi is regarded as one of the top offensive lineman recruits in the class of 2011. The 6'4" 285 pound Hobbi has dominated the opposition over the last two seasons as a varsity player for the Sabercats, while his team has amassed an astonishing 7,368 yards rushing and 93 touchdowns on the ground.

Hobbi, in appreciation for his performance on the field for Saguauro, has received an invitation to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio next year, as well as the Under Armour All-American game in Orlando, Florida in January. "That is a really great honor… I have chosen to go to the Under Armour All-American game where a bunch of my buddies are going," Hobbi told CLA Sports.

Hobbi currently holds offers from Oregon, USC, Alabama, Cal, Michigan, Notre Dame, Tennessee and a number of other universities, and indicated that he would have his list of schools narrowed down by the end of the summer. Look for Hobbi's offer list to swell as the 2010 season progresses. Regarded as the top offensive lineman on the West coast, Hobbi says, "I do love the Pac-10 and know a lot more about it's schools… but I don't know, we'll see. I wanna get the chance to check out some other schools, but I definitely like the Pac-10." It's going to be a toss up as to where Hobbi ends up playing out his college career, but look for him to make an early impact wherever he lands.
