Rivals100.com pre-evaluation period member offensive tackle Aleksey Lanis (6-6, 300, 5.1) from Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw was another outstanding prospect who performed well at the Nike Camp held in San Diego on April 24th.
Lanis has now received his third offer of the season from the Arizona State Sun Devils. UCLA came out of the box early with the first offer on February 11th and then the Stanford Cardinal offered Lanis a scholie. The Sun Devils have now joined the fray, being the third team to offer.
There will be plenty of more offers given Lanis before too long. He has unlimited potential and his athletic resume includes all the intangibles that you could want in an offensive lineman.
Lanis is considered by many as the best offensive lineman in the Los Angeles area and perhaps on the entire West Coast. He is very aggressive and has that little bit of nasty in him that you love to have in a top offensive line prospect.
Versatility is his calling card. Lanis has the talent to play all three interior line spots.
Lanis first caught the eye of Rivals.com with his outstanding performance against USC bound Thomas Herring in 2003. Many in attendance that day were very impressed on well Lanis did against one of the nation’s best prospects a year ago. His stock has been on a steady rise ever since.
As a junior, Lanis was selected all-city, all-area and all-state.
Michigan and USC are also looking at Lanis with a lot of interest.
There may be a reason that Lanis is so tough and nasty as an offensive lineman. He was born in Siberia, Russia. One of the coldest and toughest places to live on earth.
When asked if Siberia was as cold as advertised Lanis said, “It’s colder.”
