Cyrus Kouandjio Announcement: Where Will the No. 1 OT Recruit Sign?

1 of 6

    Cyrus Kouandjio remains the nation's top offensive lineman recruit as National Signing Day approaches. 

    The 6'7'', 325-pound DeMatha Catholic (Maryland) star is a force at the offensive tackle position and considered a 5-star recruit across the board. 

    WIth the perfect size and skill-set, along with unique speed and agility for a player of his size, Kouandjio is sure to make an impact wherever he ends up signing. 

    But, with two days to go before National Signing Day, we're still wondering where he'll go.

    Kouandjio remains one of the Tide's top targets and could be a potential landing spot for the tackle. 

    Kouandjio's brother Arie also plays for Alabama.

    Auburn remains in the hunt for Kouandjio but one has to wonder how interested both parties truly are.

    With the recent commitment of Christian Westerman, there isn't necessarily a need for Kouandjio on the offensive line.

    Still, the Tigers remain a potential landing spot for Kouandjio.

    New Mexico has somehow remained, albeit slightly, in the picture for Kouandjio. 

    He took his official visit to New Mexico in December but there hasn't been much news linking the two since.

    The chance of Kouandjio landing in New Mexico remains low.

    Kouandjio took his official visit to Iowa last weekend and all reports indicate that the link is strong between the Hawkeyes and Kouandjio.

    Kouandjio reportedly enjoyed what Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz had to say and can see himself falling in line among Iowa's impressive tradition of offensive linemen.

    Many of the college football recruiting analysts across the country have Kouandjio joining his brother at Alabama; I do, too. 

    Despite the mentions of not wanting to compete for playing time against his brother and his late interest in Iowa, Alabama remains the perfect place for the immediate impact tackle. He’ll flourish with the Tide.
