The Texas Longhorns have put an offer on the table for four-star Garden City (Kan) C.C. standout Bamidele Olaseni, per a report from 247Sports EJ Holland.

Olaseni stands at 6-foot-8, 330 pounds, and he absolutely annihilates defenders at offensive tackle. Olaseni is originally from London, England, but plays the game as if he’s been competing against players in the states his entire life. He has a surprisingly polished game and has the attributes that could translate well at the Power 5 level.

Texas currently has offers out to nine 2019 offensive tackle prospects, with two of those netting verbal commitments from Javonne Shepherd and Tyler Johnson. With only two commits on the offensive line thus far, Shepherd’s pledge to the Longhorns now up in the air, and Texas’ need for immediate offensive line help, it was vital for the coaching staff to put this offer on the table.

Olaseni now holds nine offers from programs including Arkansas, Kansas State, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, and Tennessee. There is no crystal ball predictions inputted for Olaseni at the moment.

Olaseni is ranked as the nation’s No. 2 offensive tackle, and as the No. 7 junior college player in the nation, per the 247Sports Composite.
