Nacogdoches (Tex.) offensive lineman Jacob Bragg is determined to light up his opponents on the field.

The 6-foot-4, 300-pound athlete, who recently won positional MVP honors at the Dallas Nike Football Camp, is focused on continuing to improve on the field.

"It means a lot," he said of picking up the award. "I went to the camp last year and I didn't really do very well, so this year, I focused on if I got beat, I'd get right back in. It really showed out. If I get to Oregon [for Nike's The Opening], then I get to Oregon. That's the goal. All I did was my best," he said.

Bragg has also caught the eye of a few programs, picking up an offer from Louisiana Tech a month ago and another from Kansas shortly after.

Both programs have captured Bragg's interest.

"I think Kansas is on the rise. You can't blame them for this season; it was the staff's first year there. They have a good coaching staff and are all very enthusiastic. It's a great place to play in the future.

"Louisiana Tech is close to home. It's a college town, and my parents would be able to see every game," he said.

He's also hearing from two in-state programs.

"Houston has been picking up interest, and Baylor has, as well," he said.

The lineman, who says he's "pretty content right now" with his recruitment, plans to attend a few camps this summer.

"I'll probably go to Houston in a couple of weeks and then to Kansas next month," he said.

Aside from his recruitment, Bragg is looking forward to his senior season after a strong personal junior year.

"I think I did pretty well. It definitely got me looks so I'm pretty satisfied with myself," he said.

Bragg sees himself staying at center at the next level.

"At center, my strengths are my physical strength and that I'm heavy and quick off of the ball; that really surprises people. I like the inside," he said.
