Three Midwest juniors -- Jonah Pirsig (Blue Earth, Minn./Area), Jordan Diamond (Chicago, Ill./Simeon) and Kyle Kalis (Lakewood, Ohio/St. Edward) -- have already emerged among the top offensive linemen in the country. The 6-foot-9, 300-pound Pirsig was on the varsity his sophomore season, but tore the MCL in his left knee and did not make it on to the field until the final two games of the season. He was a starter at both offensive left tackle and on the defensive line during his junior season. "I have four offers now," he said. "I have Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Ohio State. I went to an Iowa junior day. I'll probably go to Minnesota's junior day Feb. 20. I'm going to Wisconsin Feb. 19 and I'm going to Michigan State Feb. 26. I'll go out to Ohio State in the spring or for their spring game. Or I could wait and go to their camp in the summer."
