Top 5 O-line prospects from the state of Texas since 2008


It’s fun to look back and see which prognostications were correct and which were way off. When it comes to the state of Texas, the recruiting rankings haven’t been far off when rating offensive linemen the last few years.

Since 2008, the No. 1 ranked offensive lineman coming out of the state of Texas was Longhorns’ stud Mason Walters, who started four seasons in college. He went undrafted last week. The real story with the list below is how well the Texas A&M signees have performed, despite many times being ranked below Texas recruits. Studs like Luke Joeckel, Jake Matthews and this fall’s star Cedric Ogbuehi have done well.
