Pike Road’s (AL) rising junior defensive lineman, Malik Blocton is on track to become a highly recruited 2024 prospect.
Blocton currently holds 17 D1 offers. The Pike Road product received eight of those offers during the month of May. Alabama football hosted the fast-rising prospect for camp Saturday, and he said he feels he gained a lot of knowledge from Alabama’s defensive line coach Freddie Roach during the camp.
“The camp was amazing,” Blocton said. “I really learned a lot from coach Roach, and I would definitely want to play there. Alabama has been my dream school all my life.”

Alabama’s freshman defensive lineman, Khurtiss Perry played alongside Blocton during the 2021 football season. The duo helped the Patriots win the class 5A State Championship. At 6-foot-3 and 250 pounds, Blocton was used all across Pike Road’s defensive front as a sophomore.
The in-state prospect feels his versatility is one of his biggest strengths. However, he wants to continue to expand his repertoire of pass rush moves.
“I feel I can play on every down,” said Blocton. “I can stop the run and get pressure on the quarterback. I want to continue to add more rush moves to my bag and continue to be fluid in my movement.”
