Huge TX OL has Nebraska offer

There is nothing wrong with an offensive lineman that just likes to hit people. That's what you have in Corsicana and to the recruiting world so far he has been a relative unknown. However to college coaches he has been known for some time.

Louis Vasquez isn't rated by any pre-season publications that you would find. However, he is holding seven offers as of right now and has a conditional offer based on the results of his SAT.

"I have offers from most of the schools in Texas," Vasquez said. "That's Texas Tech, Texas A&M and Baylor. I also have offers from Oklahoma State, Iowa State, Nebraska and Kansas State."

"Texas said that they are going to wait for my SAT results before they offer. I will get an offer though if I pass the test."

Vasquez passes the eye-ball test. He is 6-foot-6 and 310 pounds. He runs the 40-yard dash in 5.2 second and carries a 380 pound bench press. The SAT shouldn't be a big deal as he also holds a 3.1 GPA. He took the SAT on June 5.

When it comes to describing his strengths playing offensive line Vasquez said, "Pass blocking, pulling and blocking down. The coaches say it's my pass blocking. I just like hitting people."

Vasquez recently attended a camp at Oklahoma State. "I liked it. It impressed me a lot." He had camp plans for Texas Tech, but was unable to attend any camps there. He is still considering camping at Texas A&M, Baylor and Oklahoma.

When it comes to picking out a college and a football team to be part of Vasquez isn't necessarily looking for tradition or a great team right now. He wants to make a team great.

"I want to be part of a team that I can help them get to a bowl game or into a National Championship. I want to go to a school that is on the rise. Two that are standing out to me are Texas Tech and Oklahoma State."

Having been to Oklahoma State before he knows what they have to offer. He is planning a trip to Texas Tech this weekend to talk to the coaches and take in an unofficial visit.

Distance won't be a factor in Vasquez's decision, but he admits that it would be nice for his family to come see him play during the season. "I won't get homesick wherever I go."

Oklahoma State and Texas Tech are two of the teams to beat for Louis. They both have told him, "They both say that they need me there to get a championship."

Vasquez says there are three teams that can make an immediate push for him if they were to offer. "USC, Oklahoma and Miami if possible." He admits that he hasn't received any mail from any of those schools, but they would be immediately considered if they offered.

Vasquez admits that he hasn't thought too much about Nebraska because taking an unofficial there this summer just wasn't feasible. However, he would take an official visit there if the opportunity presented itself.
