2009 U.S. All-American Bowl
Foley High School | AL
- Fluker dominated on both the offensive and defensive lines at Foley, despite not being introduced to offensive tackle until his senior season. He took to the position quickly enough to register 60 pancake blocks and grade out at 92 percent, earning Fluker consensus prep All-American honors.
College: University of Alabama
- After taking a redshirt season in 2009, Fluker started nine games at right tackle in 2010, and performed well enough to make the All-SEC Freshman team. Last season, he started every contest for the National Champion Crimson Tide, which ranked 15th in rushing offense and 16th in scoring offense. Due to his prototypical size and schooling at a great college program, Fluker is a likely first-round pick when his college career concludes.
