Another big offensive tackle from the state of Texas is on the radar with Houston (Texas) Langham Creek's Kelechi Osemele picking up early scholarship offers.
The 6-foot-5, 280-pounder certainly has the size to be a Division I prospect. Seeing sometime last year with two top senior prospects also shining at the Houston school, Osemele has made a name for himself and colleges are taking notice.
"Yeah, I've got scholarship offers from TCU, Iowa State, Air Force, Arkansas, and Houston," Osemele said. "I've got Houston in writing, but the others have said that it's on the way to me and I should be getting those soon."
One of those schools sticks out for the Lone Star lineman.
"TCU is my favorite," Osemele said. "They've got a solid academic program there and a good business school. Plus, they won their conference. That's why they're my favorite."
Osemele is not going to wait around long to check out TCU up close on a visit. He'll be taking an unofficial trip to the campus on June 2. However, he's not going to be pulling the trigger anytime soon.
"I'm going to wait a while before I do that," he said. "I don't have any other visits set up either for anywhere else."
Osemele says that when trying to describe his playing style he says that he's "dirty" in the way that he likes to pull out a "big hit when no one" expects him coming.
