3-Star Tackle Jake Syptak Previews Texas and TCU Camp Stops

Three-star offensive tackle Jake Syptak, who owns double-digit FBS offers, previews upcoming camp visits to Texas and TCU.

The next several weeks will be busy for The Woodlands (Texas) 2018 three-star offensive tackle Jake Syptak, who plans to hit the camp circuit hard.

Syptak, who owns double-digit FBS offers and several FCS offers, has enjoyed a big spring on the recruiting front. Schools such as Bowling Green, North Texas, SMU, Texas State, UConn, UTSA, and others have offered the 6-foot-5, 264-pounder, and more should offer in the near future.


Next up for Syptak are camp visits to Texas and TCU. Syptak will camp Sunday with Texas, followed by a camp with the Horned Frogs on June 2.

"I have been touching base with (Texas offensive line) coach (Derek) Warehime on and off over the past few months, including attending one of their spring practices," Syptak said. "(Tight ends) coach (Corby) Meekins came out to my school a couple of weeks ago to evaluate me. Coach Warehime asked me to come to one of their camps so he could work with me in person and see me compete.

"I'm really excited about the opportunity to go work with their coaches and show them what I can do."

Syptak, a top-10 offensive tackle in the state of Texas' 2018 recruiting class, said he's also been in touch with TCU offensive line coach Chris Thomsen.

"He reached out to say they were interested in me and that they would be coming by my school during spring practice," Syptak said. "After they visited, we discussed me going up there for a camp and a tour of the campus and football facilities.

"I am really interested in TCU and seeing what they have to offer. Obviously they have a great football program, so it will be interesting to compare to some of the other schools I have visited lately."

UCLASMU, Baylor, and Texas are schools Syptak visited earlier in the spring semester. UCLA is also on his summer visit list, which is as follows:

"I have been in constant phone or Twitter contact with coaches at all the camps I'm visiting," Syptak said, "and every one of them has the potential to turn into an offer if I compete well and make a strong impression.

"I think each of those schools are a good match for me academically as well, so I am really excited to go out on the road and see them and get to meet more of their coaches in person."
