DOWNEY, Calif. -- It took offensive tackle Nico Falah only two years to become one of the players to watch at Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco. He might need only another two months to become one of the players to watch on the entire West Coast.

Falah was strictly a basketball player until two years ago and didn't see his first extended football action until last season, when he started at tackle as a junior. In that one season, Falah picked up offers from Utah State, UCLA, Arizona, Oregon State and San Jose State.
