AC100 Recruiting Update: Ethan Pocic

Lemont High School in the greater Chicago area is home to one of the top offensive tackle prospects in the nation. Ethan Pocic — which is pronounced Poe-sick — is a 6-foot-7, 285-pound mauler who is no stranger to the football field. His older brother, Graham, was a three-year starter and honorable mention All-Big Ten performer for the Fighting Illini of Illinois.
