DITR – Rocky Lencioni

Rocky Lencioni is a 6’4″, 205 pound, class of 2024 WR/ Safety for Bozeman High School in Bozeman, Montana. Lencioni is one of the top players, overall, in the state of Montana, and actually took visits to Stanford, Colorado State, North Dakota State, Dartmouth, and the University of Montana, but Lencioni decided to stay in Bozeman and commit to Montana State University. He will be moving over to tight end in college, and it’s easy to see why, as Lencioni is a large, physical receiver who possesses great hands. The only knock against him is that he lacks top end speed, but does everything else as a receiver well, so moving to tight end should be beneficial for both Lencioni and the MSU Bobcats.

Lencioni compares himself to DK Metcalf and Courtland Sutton, and after watching his tape, I believe that he does compare well to those two in terms of his physicality and play-style. Lencioni’s a big reason why Bozeman is 11-0 this season and in prime position to win a state title; he has recorded 1,000 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns, and recorded two interceptions on defense. It’s also worth nothing that he recorded six interceptions in 2022. off the field, Lencioni has a perfect 4.0 GPA.
