Orloff in High SchoolOrloff is a teammate and friend of Grant at Lawrence Academy in Groton, Massachusetts. Last year, Lawrence Academy went undefeated and won the Independent School League. They finished the season as the Samson/Lorden Bowl champions. Orloff was a big play maker on both sides of the ball. He played quarterback and safety for the Spartans, but has been recruited by Iowa to play linebacker.
- Passing - 61/93 for 1032 yards, 12 TDs, 3 INTs
- Rushing - 55 rushes for 529 yards, 8 TDs
- Defense - 72 tackles, 2 INTs
This video isn't too helpful for evaluating Orloff's potential at linebacker, but as a bonus it also has Grant in it. He does look like a good athlete though and it's good to have a linebacker on board. The 2010 recruiting class was pretty stacked at linebacker, but Iowa lost 2 starters last year (Edds and Angerer) and will likely lose 2 more (Tarpinian and Hunter) this year at the position, so recruits are needed.
