Morgantown High School’s standout 2019 offensive tackle, Nick Malone, discussed his first offer and recruitment process with the APC. At 6’6, 280 lbs, Malone has gained a lot of attention regionally after producing an impressive tape last season, and by putting up several great performances at regional camps/showcases this off-season. In fact, the Pittsburgh Panthers offered the dynamic junior last weekend at one of their one-day camps after a solid performance throughout the day. Malone is currently ranked the #1 OT and #21 overall on the APC platform.
