Several key offensive and defensive linemen targets are among those visiting Texas for the Iowa State game.

A car-full of interior talent will be headed for Austin, courtesy of Rischad Whitfield, also known as The Footwork King. He’s bringing Texas A&M commits Akinola Ogunibiyi, Smart Chibuzo, Braedon Nutter, and Cedric Melton.
