Lufkin, Texas offensive guard Josh Emshoff has had a very solid spring and has also added two scholarship offers so far.
The 6-foot-4, 275-pounder, who has experience at both the guard and tackle positions, has already grabbed offers from Houston and Oklahoma State. Baylor, Rice, and Texas A&M are three other schools that the talented lineman is looking at strongly. Emshoff is in the process of getting out to several camps as well.
"I just went to an Oklahoma State camp yesterday," Emshoff said. "That went pretty well. I'm going to Texas A&M this Saturday for a camp. I'm going to Baylor's camp in a few weeks. I don't know about Rice, but I'm going to call the coach and see what I can find out."

Though Baylor has yet to offer, it is one school that Emshoff is very impressed with.
"It's really a well-rounded school, has good academics, and the football program is up and coming," Emshoff said. "It's a great place. I think I'd be happy there. I think they were looking at me in the spring and then I've got their camp. We'll see what happens after that.
"Out of the ones that haven't offered me yet, I'd say Baylor (is the favorite). But, I can't go there unless I have an offer."
Texas A&M and Rice are also up there for Emshoff. He says he's impressed with the campuses and coaching staffs at both schools. He's looking to take trips this summer and have things narrowed down as the fall approaches.
"Probably by the end of summer, I'm going to have it fairly well narrowed down," he said.
"By about to the start of the season, I'll have it two or three."
Emshoff had the opportunity to share time at both guard and tackle last season. While he's being recruited as a guard, Emshoff says that he brings several things to the table.
"Well, the thing is, I played guard for four games last year and then the rest of the season I played tackle," he said. "I don't' think my playing style changed that much. I'm not exceptionally strong, so I use my footwork and technique to my benefit."
As a junior, Emshoff was a first-team all-district selection.
