Drew Sarvary won't come right out and say Texas Tech leads his recruitment. Instead, the massive 6-foot-7 tackle goes with the whole everyone-is-equal bit. Still, some facts point to the Red Raiders leading the way.
It's a fact that Tech has given Sarvary's only BCS-level offer. It's a fact that he has just three invitations to play FBS football at this time. It's also a fact that the Red Raiders' coaching staff has made Tyler (Texas) Junior College a priority. So while he declines to name a frontrunner in the process, things seem pretty clear when he starts to discuss his recruitment.

"I don't have visits scheduled yet, but I'm definitely going to take one to Texas Tech," Sarvary said. "I might take one to North Texas, too."
Texas Tech's pursuit of Sarvary has cranked up over the last two weeks. Sarvary says he's forged a relationship with multiple members of Kliff Kingsbury's staff, but it's the way the offer arrived that made the biggest splash.
The process of landing Savary's undivided attention was as simple as a single phone call.
"The o-line coach (Lee Hays is the one recruiting me, but I actually talked to coach Kingsbury first," Sarvary said. "He's the one who called me and offered me personally.
"That shows that they are really interested and that they really want me. When the head coach calls you, that means a lot."
Of course other schools are keeping close watch over Sarvary. His offer list is limited for the time being, but he's hoping that will change once the season gets started. Depending on how the next few months play out, the situation could adopt a much different feel in a hurry.
"USF really likes me," Sarvary said. "TCU likes me a lot. Arizona State and Kansas are recruiting me. There are others. I just really can't think of them right now."
And so Sarvary will wait. He'll wait for new offers and wait to start setting dates for official visits. He says he plans to commit either late in the upcoming season or just after its conclusion.
"I don't want to rush anything because some of these other schools might offer," Sarvary said. "Then I can figure out which one fits best."
