Nick Bosa the younger brother of now professional athlete Joey Bosa and looks to be just as good.
Nick is 2 years younger than his professional brother but still boasts an impressive frame. Weighing in around 220 lbs and 6'3 he is an ideal defensive end. The brothers played with each other for two years, ending with Joey's senior year when Nick was a sophomore. They hail from the storied Florida football powerhouse St. Thomas Aquinas High School. A school famous for its consistent success and mass quantities of college athletes. Also, not just college athletes but pro as well. St. Thomas Aquinas had 17 active players represent their High School last season. Some of the big name players from that list are Geno Atkins, James White, Giovoni Bernard, Lamarcus Joyner, Major Wright, and Marcus Gilbert. St. Thomas is the best represented High School in the NFL.
They played in High School together and were just one year away from playing in College together as Nick has followed his brothers footsteps and signed a letter of intent to attend Ohio State University. Nick is ranked differently depending on which site you go to. There is 0 doubt in my mind this kid is a top 100 recruit. If you asked me to be specific I would say he is a top 5 DE without watching any other high school DE recruits, and borderline top 25. I really don't wanna say top 25 because like I said I have not watched this years recruiting class or looked into them. That being said, Bosa has got to be in those categories, he's a physical freak and makes block shedding look effortless. He plays with brains and not just brawn which is great to see at such an early level.
Here is a little video to acclimate you more towards the family of Bosa.
If Nick does get drafted, the Bosa name will be very similar to the Mathews name. Clay Mathews, and Jake Mathews whose family name boasts 7 members to have played in the NFL. Just a very ridiculous thing to think about, especially since the Mathews family has had 3 generations of their family in the NFL. CTE must run deep through their veins at this point.
Nick and Joey still have a ways to go if they want to be in the same conversation as the Mathews. Multiple Mathews have found great success in the NFL, while a couple others have not. I really believe in Joey Bosa, so why not transfer that to his very similar looking brother? I just hope all the weight he puts on when he gets to Columbus does not slow him down or hinder his athleticism. Right now his scouting reports list him as 220 lbs. By the time he appears in a game, he will probably be more around 240. The ideal weight for his position and size is between 250-260. So we shall see what happens with, I doubt he gets red shirted. Urban Meyer never has a problem with loading up his depth chart in certain places.
I wish Nick Bosa good luck next year and this summer with his workouts, but I don't wish good luck on Ohio State.
