Josh Wariboko-Alali has trimmed some weight this summer and turned even more heads of recruiters with impressive showings at camps.

The Casady offensive lineman holds 23 scholarship offers and at one time was verbally committed to Oklahoma.

But it’s his special relationship and desire to play collegiately with his younger brother Max that has everyone talking.

“Ultimately, Josh has got to make a decision for Josh,” Casady coach Koby Scoville said. “Max is a year behind, he’s a completely different kid, Max may change his mind and there’s too many factors that would change in a year. I know it would be nice for the boys to be at the same school, especially for Mom and Dad, but I don’t think in my opinion it’s a deal breaker.”

He’s always been close with his brother — an 18-month gap nearly assures that — but they got even closer last summer at a church camp.

It was there Max said he noticed they started spending more and more time together.

It’s also likely that’s when they decided they wanted to play together at the next level.

“We definitely have both schools we like together and trying to get on some visits together, but it’s more about finding the right fit for both of us,” Josh said. “I wouldn’t say it’s a deal breaker or anything, but it’s our dream and goal to play together.”

Even Josh admits when Max gets an offer from a school he already has one from, it is “a big plus.” Max, a defensive back, has offers from Louisville, Tulsa and UCLA — all of which have made an offer to Josh.
