California OL is high on Army
The Black Knights continue the quest for West Coast talent as offensive lineman Isaac Miravet out of Monrovia (Calif.) Monrovia High School has hit the Army's recruiting radar.
Although he plays both offense and defense, Miravet made it clear to GBK where he passion resides. "I play both sides of the ball, but first and foremost for me, it's on offensive side of the ball," adds, the 6-foot-2, 275 pound Miravet plays both tackle and end on defense.
He started his sophomore and junior seasons at offensive guard, but according to Miravet he will be converted to offensive tackle for the 2012 season. "As the only three year veteran on the offensive line, my coaches know I can play any of the position and want to move me out there," says the versatile offensive lineman, who has a personal best of 5.1 and 4.8 in the forty and shuttle respectively.
And it was during those developmental years that Miravet has matured as a player and part of his maturation took place both during game reps, but also through the practice sessions at Monrovia.
"I went up against againstEllis McCarthy (5 star prospect) every single day," shares Miravet of his practice encounters with his UCLA bound teammate. "We were the two biggest players out there and the coaches always wanted us to go head to head. He won some, I won some ... it was back and forth, along with making me a much better player."
Of course, Miravet is hoping that all of his hard work will begin to pay off relative to his recruiting and one school he was quick to mention was Army. "My sophomore year I attended a meeting with my running back coach, Michael Harris and he told me that he had spoke to Army's line coach about my skills, my height and weight," adds Miravet. "Then Army sent my head coach, Ryan Maddox all the questionnaires and it's my goal to attend a military academy, especially West Point."
"Going to West Point would be like having my cake and eating it to and that would be fine," declares Miravet while speaking of playing at the Division I level and attending the prestigious institution as well as serving his country.
"My coach indicated that they are interested and are looking to meet with me very soon. I'm highly interested in Army."
For Miravet, he is beginning to hit the camp and combine circuit where has been invited to the University of Washington's summer camp and the week prior to Easter, he attended the Nike Football Training Camp at Cerritos College.
According to reports, Miravet is a strong ball player who relies on both his strength and feet. His max bench and squat are 355 & 450 pounds respectively, along with maintaining a 3.0 GPA.
