Texas football recruiting: 'Horns offer La Grange OT Zach Ledwik

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Offensive line coach Stacy Searels took his time evaluating offensive linemen before extending an offer following Sunday's camp.

The Texas Longhorns hadn't extended an offer to a single in-state offensive tackle entering Sunday's camp and hadn't extended any offers at all at the position since the decommitment of Fort Worth All Saints offensive guard Demetrius Knox in late April. On Tuesday that changed, as offensive line coach Stacy Searels made the call to offer La Grange offensive tackle Zach Ledwik.

A consensus three-star prospect whose grade just got bumped up to 86 by 247Sports after an in-person evaluation at the camp, Ledwik has a number of offers from major programs, including Baylor, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, and Oregon State.

What Ledwik doesn't have is any available highlight film, as his Hudl page is set to private. The 6'5, 271-pounder is rated as above-average in most categories by 247Sports, except for his strength and his pass protection, and tested as the best offensive tackle in the shuttle drill in one setting cited on his ESPN page (and may have been an Under Armour Combine, judging by his profile picture.

In any case, the two key offers in terms of Ledwik's potential are probably Baylor and Oklahoma State. While the Bears put out quite a few offers, if Baylor offensive line coach Randy Clements and Oklahoma State offensive line coach Joe Wickline think that Ledwik can play, he probably can.

Ledwik told ESPN that he doesn't have a timetable to make a decision ($) in the near future, so this isn't going to be an open-and-shut recruitment for the La Grange product and Texas, perhaps in part because the Longhorns really hadn't been recruiting him at all before Sunday, besides taking the opportunity to extend the camp invite.
