2015 Chaminade OL Strachan likes Miami

South Florida is often recognized for producing talented skill position players, but not enough attention is paid to the offensive linemen that come out of the area. 2015 Chaminade-Madonna OL Christian “C.J.” Strachan was one of the budding stars from this group during his junior season.

“I improved upon my takeoff and my pass-blocking really went to the next level when I lost all that weight because I feel more mobile,” said Strachan.

Strachan dedicated himself in order to drop a good amount of weight, which led to his impressive season.

“I was at 320 and now I’m at 295 so I’m trying to stay around there. I’m looking to play guard (in college).”

Strachan said that Rutgers, Arkansas, UM, West Virginia, Boston College, and Marshall have all been in contact with him, but one in particular seems to stand out above the rest.

“UM is my childhood favorite and they are one of my top 5 schools sticking out. Mark D’Onofrio has reached out to me and I get a good vibe that they’re interested in me.”

The 6-3, 295-pound junior will be in Coral Gables next week.

“I’ll be out there for the junior day (January 26th). The atmosphere there is great because it feels at home with the coaching staff and everything.”

The native of the Bahamas was out in San Antonio a few weeks ago for the U.S. Army underclassmen combine and reportedly did very well.

“That was a great experience. I went 6-1 in the one-on-ones so that was a great experience.”

Chaminade has one of the top offensive line coaches down here. Look forward to seeing him develop. He was with Valentine yesterday and was just as big as him
 
Is it out of the norm for a DC to be recruiting an OLineman? Or is that just Donofrio "area"??? I see marshall and west virgina as offers and he plays at Chaminade are grades going to be an issue down the road???

I dont know his specific situation but Most kids qualify right away out of Chaminade. The only recent D1 guy that I can think of that had to do Prep was Akeem Auguste, who is now on the Seattle Seahawks practice squad.

His grades are fine. Marshall and West Virginia just do a really, really good job of identifying talent early down here.

D'Onofrio's recruiting region is Broward County
 
Finally a damn Guard!! Lets hope he's not from the Ian Symonette Bahamian school of OL.

Amen. Getting tired of five tackles on the line. Need real guards to play guard. These tall tackle type just can't pull well enough, run block inside, or get under everyone on short yardage. 6'3" and wide is what we need.
 
My understanding is that he is a good kid who is very quiet and has decent enough grades to get into the U.
 
242 Bahamian!!!!! I need him on the team to represent


ya he isnt the only bahamian ol down here either.....we got another one at sta....my dad was tryna get him to MNW last year...

im 242 all the way

- kid is bahamian..he isnt gonna wanna leave too far from down here....so we can lock him up rather early honestly....

tralize though that Danny Isadora is bahamian and likely one of our best young ol and a beast at that guard.

symonette was a leaner in high school with bad feet.....this is a new breed of bahamian ol...lmao
 
Kid's film is pretty good.

TV comes back aboard, this kid follows? 2015 Trevor Darling/Erick Flowers?
 
OLine can certainly use better technique coaching and timing. Need more stocky guards that excel in the run game and athletic enough to pull. Isadora is that type. We just need a couple more.

thing is Isadora isnt even that Stocky...hes a legit 6'4 guy...we just have HUGE azz Tackles ....like over 6'7 huge.

I like my guards sitting between 6'2-6'4 though.
