Kaleh is one of Texas' top OL

St. Pius has made a name for itself among the Texas private school ranks over the past decade. While they fell short of a state title shot this year, junior offensive guard Cody Kaleh is ready to right the ship next season.

"We ended up losing in the first round of the playoffs, which was frustrating," Kaleh said. "We just played poorly. We had been playing pretty well all season, but our youth just showed in the end. We were only returning two offensive starters from last season, so we were replacing a lot. Next season will be different."


With his recruitment process picking up, the 6-4, 290-pound Kaleh said that his options remain open, though he has an early favorite.


"I have been getting a lot of letters from a lot of schools," he said. "The most letters are coming from Alabama, Arizona, Texas and Texas A&M. I like Texas a lot, just because I grew up a fan. I went to their spring game last year as one of the top juniors being hosted. It was a cool experience, for sure. That is the one scholarship that you could say I am waiting on."


As for the Tigers, Kaleh said that the interest is definitely there.


"I have always really liked LSU," he said. "I have not heard from the coach's yet, but it is still pretty early in the process. I would definitely like to check things out, though. They had a down year this season, but anything is looked at as poor after the season that they had two years ago when they won the national championship."


With football season wrapped up, the Houston-native has one more event planned before he turns his focus onto his recruitment process.


"I got invited to the US Army All American combine," Kaleh said. "I am going to get to go work out at the junior combine, so a lot of top talent should be there. The next day we go and watch the seniors in the bowl game. It should be a great time, and it is definitely an honor to get to go."
