C-M's Paulina ranked 11th best WPIAL prospect

Ringgold QB Nico Law
I'm not a big fan of preseason rankings for high school football, but Karlo Kovko of Pitt 24/7 Sports released his top 150 senior football prospects in the WPIAL.

Canon-McMillan senior offensive lineman Alex Paulina, a Pitt commit, leads area players as the 11th ranked prospect on the list. He is followed in the top-25 by South Fayette quarterback Brett Brumbaugh at 18, Peters Township quarterback Cory Owen at 19 and Ringgold quarterback Nico Law (22).

Other players include SF defensive back Roman Denson (26), Trinity quarterback Forrest Cullings (50), SF tight end Logan Sharp (61), McGuffey lineman Ryan Stienstraw (74), Wash High safety/running back Malik Wells (85), Wash High lineman Zach Blystone (90), McGuffey running back James Duchi (112), SF lineman Anthony Davidson (113).

You can find the complete rankings here.

Biggest suprise: North Catholic athlete PJ Fulmore at number one. Fulmore is a great player, but its tough to argue against Central Valley's Jordan Whitehead, who has offers from Alabama, Penn State, Ohio State, Pitt and West Virginia.

  • Brumbaugh and Owen are receiving more interest than their ranking, but it's understandable. On the other hand, I think Blystone is the most underrated player on the list. He'll senior season will justify a much higher ranking

Law: Ringgold's Nico Law will pick up more interest after the season begins. I'm curious to see how he adjusts to a new offense, but he could be an exciting weapon for many college football programs. Incredibly fast and is a much better passer than people think.
