There is no shortage of offensive line talent at Corpus Christi (Texas) Calallen High School. With three-star offensive guard Brock Unruh already heading to Kansas State, his teammate Tyler Marrou, who projects both as a tight end and an offensive tackle, is racking up the offers and the attention, too.
“I have offers from TCU, SMU, Stanford and Colorado,” Marrou, who is 6-foot-4 and 235 pounds, said. “I don’t know what I’m going to do right now. I’m still debating what I’m going to do. I’d rather not commit this early, because you never know what might happen if you play hard. Some new schools might come looking at you.”
But don’t get Marrou wrong. He’s extremely excited about the offers he already has on his resume.
“A couple of those look really good,” Marrou said. “Colorado, well, they’re a Big 12 team that I know really well. And you can’t help but be excited about TCU and Stanford. Those are two very good football programs and schools, too.”
Other teams that are starting to hint they might offer soon are Texas Tech, and possibly Texas A&M and Kansas State.
But the recruiting process is just one thing on his mind. He’s mainly focused on his team’s first game that comes up this Friday night against C.C. Ray.
“They’re the ones that called us, and want to play us, so they must have something,” Marrou said. “So that means they must have something. We watched their tape, and they look like an all right team. They have a couple of good looking guys.”
