Coach Mangurian on Annabi: Early decision. Attended our camp last summer. Tough, competitive and focused. Good read and diagnose. Has a gift for being around the ball. Good size and range. Can get off the hash. Will come up and force the run. Nick will have to learn to tackle lower in college. His size and strength let him get away with tackling high in high school. Played against a very high level of competition in Texas.
