Texas OL interested in ASU unofficial

Arizona State may get a summer visit from Texas offensive lineman Mackenzie Nworah as he considers his process.

Texas offensive line prospect Mackenzie Nworah is still trying to get used to the recruiting process.

“I’m kind of new to all of this, myself,” Nworah said. “Honestly, it’s been crazy. I can’t even believe where I am right now actually. It’s been great though. It’s been a different experience and everything.”

The lineman from Manvel High School in Manvel, Texas, said he has 11 total scholarship offers. One of those offers came from Arizona State early in his recruitment.

Nworah said he has the same amount of interest in all the schools that have offered him so far.

Going forward in his recruitment, Nworah would like to learn more about Arizona State.

“(I’m) excited about their offer,” Nworah said. “I’m going to try and get up there sometime this summer to see the campus.”

On the trip, Nworah said he wants to see how the coaches and players interact with each other. Nworah is very interested in studying physical therapy and will look in to the ASU physical therapy program on his visit.

Some of the other schools that have offered the 6-foot-3, 306-pound lineman include Colorado, Louisiana Tech, Maryland and Texas Tech.

Nworah said he is also planning trips Maryland and Texas Tech soon.

Nworah said ASU grad assistant offensive line coach Josh Martin has been calling him most often. He has also spoken with offensive line coach Chris Thomsen.

In their conversations, the coaches have given Nworah insight about the ASU offensive system and how they use their offensive linemen.

The coaches appear to believe they can used Nworah’s athleticism at ASU.

“They told me about how they get their offensive linemen out in space to make blocks and everything,” Nworah said. “They told me I’m a very good fit for that.”

Nworah competed in a Nike Opening regional combine and a Next Level Athlete event in Houston. He does not plan on attending any upcoming junior days.

If a school that has offered him a scholarship and is running a summer camp in the Houston area, Nworah said he would try to attend.

At this point, Nworah does not have a date in mind when he wants to make his commitment. During the spring and throughout the summer, Nworah said he is going to be focused on unofficial visits and getting to know the coaches that are interested in him.

He said he should narrow down his choices before the high school football season and probably make his commitment during the football season.

Nworah said he does not have a front-runner at this stage of his recruitment. But, he is still very interested in the Sun Devils.

“I know they’re a very high-powered school,” Nworah said. “They’re very great in the Pac-12 and everything and they’re a very beautiful place to go to school at.”
