These things don’t always work out the way they’re hyped , but for what it’s worth, an 8th grade quarterback phenom who was reportedly offered by Auburn has announced he will attend Los Alamitos High next year.
Malachi Nelson (6-3, 175) has looked pretty good playing last year for Garden Grove 14U Pop Warner (led them to the national finals) and has also been impressing folks at SoCal QB camps. He certainly has arm strength as UnderTheRadar video shows.
Incoming freshman quarterback Malachi Nelson (6-3, 175), who was recently offered by Auburn, said he plans to attend Los Alamitos in the fall. Auburn is the first school to offer Nelson, who is in the eighth grade. “Auburn was huge for my first offer,” Nelson said.
