Alvarez said a weight is lifted off his shoulder now that everything is official.
Columbia Heights school officials noted that it’s been a long time since they’ve had a football player commit to a Power-5 program. We have to go back to the 1980s for the last, with former Kansas City Chiefs OL John Alt in that mix. Before becoming a 1st round draft pick, he starred at Iowa.
