Class of 2022 Five-star offensive tackle Julian Armella holds thirty-four offers from all of the top blue-chip programs in the country. On Wednesday, he cut his top schools list to ten.
The son of former Florida State national champion nose guard, Enzo Armella, included Miami (FL), Florida, Michigan, Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Tennessee, FSU, Alabama, and Ohio State in his top ten.
Armella comes off a picture-perfect season with St. Thomas Aquinas, one of the top high school programs in the country. The Raiders completed the perfect 15-0 season, capturing the Class 7A State Title, and beating Saint Louis (Hawaii) in the GEICO State Champions Bowl Series to become the high school national champions.
The 6-foot-6, 300-pound offensive tackle is ranked No. 127 overall and as the No. 14 offensive tackle in the class of 2022 by 247Sports.
In an Instagram live interview with 305Sports, he told me that he plans to commit or drop a top-five schools list towards the end of his junior year or the beginning of his senior campaign.
Armella will be rocking gray and navy blue next season at Gulliver Prep, who finished the 2019 season with a 10-1 record.
