Nico Iamaleava showcases his skills in the Polynesian Bowl
5-star recruit and No. 1 overall 2023 football recruit, Nico Iamaleava, demonstrated some elite arm power, and accuracy in a recent social media post.
On3 sports had the following to say about Nico in a recent article:
"“Has one of the strongest arms in the cycle, generating considerable velocity on his throws in camp settings and on Friday nights. Tall with a slender build at round 6-foot-6, 195 pounds with a 10-inch hand. Has considerable room to fill out. Boasts a whippy throwing motion despite his longer arms. Effortlessly drives the ball downfield while targeting vertical routes.”"
The 5-star has been all over the internet showing why he is the best in his class, and Volunteer fans are excited to see him in real action during spring camp.
