One of the top offensive line prospects in the state trimmed his list to 10 on Monday afternoon and the Texas Longhorns survived the cut.

Along with the home-state Longhorns, Ghirmai also listed Alabama, LSU, UCLA, Florida, TCU, Oregon, Michigan, Georgia and Ohio State as programs still being considered; an impressive list, to say the least.

A three-star prospect out of Frisco Wakeland, Ghirmai’s offer list is currently up to 29 schools with programs such as Baylor, Colorado, Houston, Ole Miss, Oklahoma State and Utah finding themselves on the outside of Ghirmai’s recruitment looking in. Considering the powerhouse names featured in Ghirmai’s top 10, it seems unlikely that any other outsiders emerge going forward.

As far as Texas is concerned, Ghirmai recently stressed to Burnt Orange Nation the significance of winning and relationships in his recruitment.

“Personal relationships and hope to see them win a title,” Ghirmai said of what Texas needs to show him for a commitment. “At least close. I want to go to a school that could win a national championship.”

Ghirmai, whom was on campus last month for Texas’ junior days, say he has a great relationship with Longhorns offensive line coach Derek Warehime and he believes the staff in place can get Texas back to it’s winning ways, “but only time will tell.”

At 6’4, 290 pounds, Ghirmai ranks as the nation’s No. 356 player, No. 26 offensive tackle and the No. 46 player in Texas, per 247Sports Composite.
