When the Texas Longhorns play for a final time in Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium on Saturday against the Iowa State Cyclones, head coach Tom Herman and his program will host a handful of visitors, including two Texas A&M Aggies commits.
The 2020 offensive linemen, Sugar Land Kempner’s Akinola Ogunbiyi and Fort Bend Hightower’s Smart Chibuzo, are coming to Austin with noted Houston-area trainer Rischad Whitfield, also known as Footwork King:
Also accompanying Footwork King and the two Aggies pledges will be 2020 Tomball Memorial defensive tackle Braedon Nutter, who holds offers from Colorado and Houston, and 2020 Houston Klein Cain offensive tackle Cedric Melton.
Ogunbiyi and Chibuzo are the definite headliners, however — both hold offers from the Longhorns, but both committed to the Aggies on the same weekend that they received those offers. In the case of Ogunbiyi, he committed on the same day.
So this weekend will provide a key opportunity for co-offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Herb Hand and Director of Recruiting Bryan Carrington to build relationships with two of the top offensive linemen in the state for the next cycle.
With the recent commitment of Helotes O’Connor offensive guard Logan Parr and the Horns sitting in a strong position with League City Clear Creek offensive tackle Chad Lindberg, Texas has made strides in the offensive trenches in the 2020 class and can continue to do so this weekend.
